Thome & Co was founded as a ship agency in Singapore by Mr. Freitjov Thome in 1963. An expansion into ship management followed in 1976 and we are proud to be among the pioneers of the Ship Management industry.
Thome Ship Management was the first independent third party manager in Singapore, where our ship management operation started from a team of 16 people 35 years ago and today it employs more than 500 shore staff across offices worldwide and have a pool of around 10,000 seafarers to man the around 300 ships we operate, 200 of them under full technical management.
2013 will be a milestone year for several reason aside from our half century anniversary.
We also celebrate 25 years of setting up our manning office TSM Shipping (Phils) in Manila together with our valued partner.
Philippines remains our main source of excellent crew and the location of our TSM training center.
TSM shipping also celebrates a remarkable 20 years partnership with Jo Tankers, one of the oldest and most loyal Principals in what has been a relation of great mutual benefit.
Our Regional Office Head quarter (ROHQ) was also set up in Manila few years back and has grown rapidly, now also hosting our Group Shared Service Center.
Lastly, our Chairman, Mr. Olav Eek Thorstensen is celebrating his 70th birthday in 2013, which is also a good reason to celebrate.
