Seattle: Crowley Maritime Corp has bought Maritime Management Services (MMS), a Seattle-based company with more than a decade’s worth of experience in crew management for offshore oil and gas vessels primarily in the US Gulf, Singapore and Gulf of Mexico. No price was given for the acquisition.
In addition to MMS’ Seattle headquarters, the organization also has a secondary location in Singapore.
“What sets MMS apart from others in the industry is their level of customer service and crewmember loyalty,” said Crowley’s Mike Golonka, vice president, ship management. “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.”
In April last year, Crowley bought out another shipmanager, Accord.
