Every pioneer has a successful story to tell, especially one
with a history as inspiring as President Marine’s.
Incorporated in 1977, the company’s humble origins began as an
equipment-hiring agency. However, with subsequent success in a series of
joint-ventures with various maritime agencies, President Marine joined the
league of shipbuilders and never looked back since.
The meteoric rise was the result of hard work and stringent
quallity control. Between 1980 and 1992, the company built over 140 vessels of
various classes and acted as commissioning agents for the selling and hiring of
Even the shipping depression of 1985 could not deter President Marine from
continued growth. While other companies came to a standstill, President Marine
expanded further to encompass tanker construction, large-scale ship conversions
and supply vessels for various projects. Presently, workshop and yard
facilities have been upgraded to maintain the company’s high standard of
competency and professionalism.
With unparalleled singlemindedness to be the best in the
industry, President Marine in 1988 embarked on an aggressive expansion
programme internationally to elevate its status to a premier shipbuilder.
President Marine’s move also called for a major reorganization in the
infrastructure and sharpening of its global and regional marketing strategies.
This catapulted the company even greater heights.
The company has been able to win over clients with its
value-added services for the offshore and marine industries especially in the
Asia-Pacific region. Besides Singapore, President Marine now serves clients
from countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, the
Middle East, Europe and Latin America. The company’s current objective is to
add even more clients to its rapidly growing list in the coming decade.
