PIRAEUS OFFICE

PIRAEUS HEAD OFFICE

Our Piraeus office was established in 1974. It has -over the years- attained recognition by Principals and Clients, by providing survey and casualty work as approved non-exclusive surveyors of the Salvage Association London (from 1977 onwards).


Since the early 2000's, our Piraeus office continued providing such services on direct instructions from Lloyd's and International H&M Underwriters and P&I Clubs. Simultaneously and gradually the company expanded and established offices on a worldwide basis. Thus the Piraeus office became the headquarters of our global network and operations.
