With Marintec 2019 taking place in Shanghai this week, LR is celebrating its 150-year anniversary in China. Since we sent our first surveyor to Shanghai in 1869, we have supported China’s huge transformation to the global powerhouse it is today. Horizons takes a look back at the momentous milestones achieved over the years.
