IBIA Moves Office

Friday, August 22, 2003
The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) is relocating from London to Southampton, on the UK south coast. Ian Adams, IBIA secretary general says: "Relocating to Southampton is part of a planned initiative designed to streamline administrative procedures and costs, while maintaining efficiency and service to members. "Southampton is one of the UK's largest ports and a bunkering centre in its own right, with the huge Fawley refinery close by. From Southampton we can run an efficient administration and not have to support heavy rental overheads." As part of its relocation program, IBIA has also appointed a new administrator, Anne Chambers. Chambers' background is in administrative, personnel and book-keeping related duties. She will be working with Adams in Southampton. With effect from Monday 25 August 2003, IBIA's new address and contact details will be:
