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
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:
5-7 Cumberland Place
