Crowley Maritime Corp. has announced the acquisition of crew management company Maritime Management Services, Inc. (MMS).
MMS has experience in crew management for offshore oil and gas vessels in the US Gulf, Singapore and Gulf of Mexico. The addition of MMS to Crowley’s ship management divisions strengthens the company’s global reach.
MMS offers crewmembers services such as visas, flag-state and immigration documentation; crewmember certifications, including Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STWC) and any client or operational area requirements; and logistics, administrative and travel support.
Commenting on the addition, Crowley’s Mike Golonka, VP Ship Management, said: “What sets MMS apart from others in the industry is their level of customer service and crewmember loyalty. Together Crowley Accord and MMS can offer total crewing solutions, from single hires and full crew management through complete technical management to the oil and gas industry. Our offshore clients will greatly benefit from this relationship.”
Crowley recently announced the acquisition of a US$48.5 million construction contract for a new pier at its Isla Grande Terminal in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
