Newly acquired CPO Tankers renamed Zeaborn Tankers

Claus-Peter Offen Tankschiffreederei (CPO Tankers), formerly the tanker management subsidiary of Offen Group, has been renamed Zeaborn Ship Management Tanker (Zeaborn Tankers) by its new owner Zeaborn Group.

CPO Tankers became part of Zeaborn in June after a deal was announced in May, and has started trading under its new name with effect from November 4.

Zeaborn Tankers will operate as a legally independent company under the brand name Zeaborn Ship Management, which is the entity that Zeaborn has bundled all its ship management activities.

“Following our strategy to further consolidate the shipping industry and to expand our services as an integrated and globally active shipping company, entering the tanker management segment was a logical step. Zeaborn Tankers’ management and employees, the well-managed fleet and their organisational structure are a perfect match to Zeaborn Ship Management,” said Jan-Hendrik Többe, managing partner of Zeaborn Group.
