New Distributor Partnership with Laborde Products

Scania USA is pleased to announce Laborde Products Inc. as the newly appointed Distributor for Scania Marine products for the Gulf Coast and Inland Waterways Regions, effective November 1st.

Scania’s commitment to service and support is clearly reflected in the choice of Laborde Products.  Scania USA selected Laborde based on their knowledge and understanding of customers’ needs and their operations based in the gulf region.  Laborde Product's headquarters is in the heart of Louisiana and they have a brand new facility in Houston, Texas, with staff strategically located throughout their territory.

“I am very happy we can now announce Laborde as our new marine Distributor for the Gulf Coast and Inland Waterway Regions.  Among the many reasons we selected Laborde was due to our shared core values, “Customer First” and “Respect for the Individual”, along with Laborde's success and experience in the territory.  I am confident this is the best move for our customers in the area and that we will have a long and fruitful partnership.” - Håkan Sterner, President of Scania U.S.A.

“The Laborde Team is excited about our new partnership with Scania Marine. The Scania engine line up will allow us to provide high power, low weight engines to customers in our primary commercial marine market that were previously out of our engine scope.” - Brian Laborde, President of Laborde Products.
