We provide our services upon direct instructions by the majority of worldwide insurance markets such as London, Nordic, French, German, P&I Clubs, Solicitors, Average Adjusters, Banks/Mortgagees, Flag States and on occasion Shipping Companies. 

Our Piraeus head office in Greece serves as the hub of our operations, providing support to our office network at all times. From the early 2000s onwards, with cautious and solid steps, we developed a network of owned offices in Europe, Asia and the Americas, namely Gibraltar, Constanza, Istanbul, Shanghai, Singapore, Buenos Aires, Asuncion, Rio De Janeiro and Panama. 

Our offices around the globe, strategically located in key geographical areas and major repair zones of the three continents, enable us to respond swiftly and efficiently follow-up any marine casualty worldwide until completion of repairs.

Our team of highly qualified Marine Engineers and Naval Architects combine profound technical expertise with substantial practical experience (seagoing and ship repair). Having been involved in all types of serious and high-profile cases, our Surveyors are able to accurately assess the casualty circumstances, carry out in-depth investigation and also timely report to our Principals. Our Surveyors are available on a 24/7 basis to survey ships in peril, provide expert advice and cost-effective solutions. 

We enjoy our profession and teamwork, continuously striving to improve our services, always guided by the principles of efficiency and integrity.
