Arriving to Costa Rica on 1993 understands totally the needs of ships and crew locally, his wide experience let him structure a company to fulfill the needs of ships in a country where there was no such possibility. Being pioneer as ship supplier knows changing needs in a growing market.
Initially started an office in Puerto Caldera, along the years was needed to open branch offices in the rest of Costa Rican Ports, being the sole authorized company in Pacific and Caribbean.
Rapidly became the best alternative in Costa Rica as a trustworthy supplier. Over the years client needs had changed, requesting new services, expanding the services to other areas such fuel and spare parts delivery, repairs and waste disposal.
