Creating sustainable shipping industry with our customers
Since we opened our doors in 1968, our business has matured from a general ship supplier to a full service engineeing company. To meet growing demand for our service in Southeast Asia, we opened our Singapore branch in 1984. And, today, aside from a substantial amount of business it generates locally, it also performs a critical function in our organization as a regional hub providing logistical support to our supply chain and engineering service.
We represent many industry-leading equipment and machinery manufactures as well as service providers. And, together with our partners and
affiliates across the world, we have a far-reaching network well established to cover all major international markets. Please check "Makers List" for more information.
Because the world trade is ever so depending on the international shipping industry, it is often said, without ships, half the world would starve and the other half would freeze. However, the paradigm is shifting. Despite of its great efficiency imcomparable to other means of transportation, the sheer scale makes the industry a major contributor to the global GHG and other harmful emissions. Ballast water and hull fauling are also known to play siginificant role in transporting aquatic invasive species disruptive to native ecosystem.
As a tidal wave of new regulations addressing the environmental impact of shipping is approaching, we are here to assist socially responsible ship owners and operators to stay ahead of the game and remain competitive with a full complement of services to improve energy efficiency and reduce environmental footprint of their valuable assets in turbulant times. Please check "Our Solutions" for more information.
