He further explained that the move indeed reinforces Thome’s drive and commitment to further strengthen Thome Group’s services towards its already strong ship owner client base in Scandinavia. In addition, it provides a prime foothold to further expand the company's European presence and to offer its full range of ship management services and products.

With the establishment of Thome Ship Management Denmark in Copenhagen, Thome reaffirms its long-term commitment to actively support the Danish Maritime Cluster growth strategy as a future European maritime hub.

The event was further appraised by the announcement from Mr. Ostenfeldt that Thome Denmark as a key objective has already received the Danish DOC allowing the Thome Group to offer third party ship management under the Danish Flag (DIS / DAS) to respective owners.
