- Major service center to meet strong growth in ship population and power generation on the Mediterranean Sea

Friedrichshafen/Pégomas, 20 March 2009. Tognum, the specialist for propulsion and power solutions, opened a new after-sales service center in Pégomas in the South of France for its subsidiary mtu France today. In the future, mtu will be able to provide customers with its spare parts and top-quality service even faster than is already the case. On the Côte d’Azur, the number of ships powered by mtu engines has substantially increased over the past few years, with the yacht segment booming in particular.
The new service center in Pégomas replaces mtu´s previous location in Mandelieu. Pégomas is located about ten kilometers northwest of Cannes. The new site was selected primarily because of its proximity to the large Mediterranean marinas. Ninety percent of the Mediterranean ship population are concentrated along the 150-kilometer coastline from Monaco to St. Tropez. Large yacht harbors such as Monaco, Cannes or Antibes as well as Nice with its port for passenger liners and patrol boats are located here. Power generation plants in Southern France are also provided with technical support from Pégomas. On an area of
3,000 sqm, mtu operates a workshop and a spare parts store for engine servicing and overhaul. The new service center with its workforce of 40 is responsible for the entire organization and coordination of the mtu customer service in Southern France. At the integrated training center, customers as well as mtu service technicians are continuously trained in engine mechanics and electronics.
With the new after-sales service center in Pégomas, the Tognum Group consistently continues its strategy of expanding its after-sales business and further decentralizing its sales activities. Organizationally, Pégomas is part of the Tognum subsidiary mtu France based in Beauchamp near Paris.
