Our ambition is to shape the maritime industry.
Founded in 1861, the Wilhelmsen group operates the largest maritime network on the planet, with over 2 200 locations worldwide. Delivering market-leading products and services to over half of the world’s merchant fleet, we also supply best in class crew and technical management to the biggest and most complex vessels currently at sea. Consistently developing innovative, customer-focused and sustainable solutions, we’re taking an active role in shaping the maritime industry for the future. In addition, through our investments we are exploring new opportunities, with new partners, within the renewable energy, alternative fuels, offshore and technology industries. With thousands of colleagues in more than 70 countries, we take competence, compliance, sustainability, innovation and unparalleled customer experiences one step further.
Achieving the right results, the right way is a core element of how we do business. By working in a consistent manner worldwide we will be able to navigate safely in a rapidly changing environment.
