Press Release
Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Thome Ship Management of Singapore inks a joint venture partnership with Doehle Danautic, a leading shipping service provider in India.

In what is to be seen as a significant further step into India for Thome Ship Management, the group is joining with Doehle Danautic to expand the pool of Indian officers for its tanker, drybulk and offshore fleets reaffirming its long-term commitment to India as a future maritime sourcing hub for qualified Indian officers for worldwide trading.

The main driver is to build up the partnership with Doehle Danautic to provide well trained, professional officers for Thome's tanker and drybulk fleets in parallel to its officers provided by existing manning agency relations in India and Sri Lanka.

The plan is also to use the joint venture setup as a vehicle to target Indian offshore officers for the Thome Offshore managed fleet and by doing so enhance career opportunities for more Indian officers in this segment.

Olav Eek Thorstensen, Group Chief Executive Officer & Chairman of Thome, said : "I am delighted to be linking with Daniel Chopra and Doehle Danautic , one of the great dynamic and successful names in Indian shipping today. "Under Daniel Chopra's dynamic leadership, Doehle Danautic has gained an excellent reputation and results and I believe Thome can both contribute to and benefit from that."

Doehle Danautic currently has offices across India including Mumbai, New Delhi, Goa, Chennai, Kolkata, Gurgaon, Mundra and Bhavnagar.
