​HAWKINS OPENS IN HONG KONG

Hawkins is delighted to announce the opening of its Hong Kong Office as a result of the acquisition of HFS-Asia. HFS-Asia has an established market in the Far East, with expertise and a wealth of experience of cases involving materials, shipping, dangerous cargoes and agricultural cargoes. The inclusion of HFS-Asia into the Hawkins Group will further expand the services we offer and the geographical area we can cover.

Our Managing Director, Andrew Moncrieff, says, “This is a very exciting time for Hawkins. Ever since our Dubai Office opened in 2014 we have wanted to extend our reach further to the east in order to give a better service to our clients in that area. The acquisition of HFS-Asia gives us that extra reach and introduces us to new clients and markets. We very much look forward to working with John Allum and his team over the coming months, to welcome them into our Company and to build on the complimentary skills and experience we all have so that we can continue a first class service to clients.”
