History

The Company was established in 1964 by George and Zannis Halcoussis when they both came to Greece after leaving their birthplace Alexandria. At the time of its foundation, the company managed two tween-deck vessels.

The policy of the Company was to manage good quality tonnage, with the aim of keeping and trading the vessels throughout their viable life span, without asset play being the primary concern.


In 2002 the Company's principals entered the newbuilding market for the first time, ordering two supramax double skin bulk carriers at New Century Shipbuilding (now New Times) in China. Both vessels were delivered in the first half of 2005 and are successfully trading worldwide, under the company’s management down to date.

The Company’s intention has always been to build and maintain long lasting relationships with the industry’s leading and most reputable Banks, Charterers, Insurers, Suppliers, Classification Societies and other companies and organisations/institutions.


With an experience of over half a century in the shipping industry, the Company can guarantee a high standard of performance and reliable service and carriage of cargoes, with efficient tackling of all risks exposed to in our every day operations.

The third generation has now entered into the management of the Company.
