Singapore: Thome Ship Management of Singapore today inked a joint venture partnership deal with Doehle Danautic, a leading shipping service provider in India.
Thome is joining with Doehle Danautic to expand the pool of Indian officers for its tanker, drybulk and offshore.
Currently around 10% of Thome Group’s total officer complements deployed on its 300+ managed vessels are from India and Sri Lanka. As the Thome managed fleet continues to grow the intention is to maintain the 10% officer supply ratio as a reoccurring strategic objective.
Carsten Ostenfeldt, ceo of Thome Ship Management said: “We are indeed very pleased to announce this strategic joint venture with Doehle Danautic which is one of India’s premier growing Shipping Companies. We complement each other well. It means that Thome will now enjoy a much stronger platform to expand our global services as complement our existing network of Thome offices around the world. I strongly believe this demonstrates the group’s commitment to further strengthen our links with India, a country with a great maritime tradition and one that consistently produces some of the world’s best officers.” [19/12/12]
