The Company:
The longtime leader among global classification societies in terms of tonnage, ClassNK isn’t necessarily well known here on North America’s brown water. That’s about to change. ClassNK quietly classes an impressive amount of brown water, inland tonnage as well. This coupled with its recognized leadership in the bulk trades makes Class NK an ideal choice to enter a local sector sorely in need of that kind of expertise.
 
The Case:
Hand in hand with its steady move into previously untapped markets, ClassNK is quietly positioning itself to serve the U.S. inland operator. ClassNK’s expanded authorization(s) from the U.S. Coast Guard received last year are just as important. Already, ClassNK surveyors annually carry out more than 1,000 surveys and audits in North America. ClassNK just classed its U.S. flag ship. Two recent domestic acquisitions – SMS Consulting and Helm Operations – augment ClassNK’s already impressive portfolio. Helm is a leading provider of manning, maintenance, dispatch, and HSQE software to the workboat and offshore industries. SMS LLC formulates subM compliance solutions designed specifically for individual clients.
