TSAVLIRIS SALVAGE GROUP - News & Announcements
TSAVLIRIS' 28th CHRISTMAS RECEPTION 2015 - 2015 Dec 10
Tsavliris Salvage Group held their traditional Christmas Cocktail Reception at the Royal Thames Yacht Club of London on 8 December 2015. With over 300 key players from various sectors of the shipping community attending, the annual event is a Christmas highlight for the London Maritime community.
Mr Andreas A. Tsavliris addressed the large gathering of guests, welcoming and thanking them for their kind support over the years. He addressed the developments of the Group in 2015, including the expansion of the Tsavliris fleet. Mr Tsavliris mentioned the importance and value of the LOF (Lloyd's Open Form) salvage contract; he described the difficulties the salvage industry is facing as well as the changes to the sector which result in many companies merging (creating joint ventures), some closing down their salvage division or even trying to sell their entire company. Amongst many other topics, Mr Tsavliris also announced with great pleasure the engagement of his daughter, Natalia, to be married next summer. He highlighted that this is a particularly special year for the Tsavliris Salvage Group, which celebrates 100 years from the birth of the company's founding father, Alexander G. Tsavliris; 75 years from the commencement of the first Tsavliris shipping company and 50 years from the foundation of Tsavliris Salvage in 1964. The publication of Alexander G. Tsavliris' biography is expected soon with all his history and achievements as well as the evolution of the Group and the Family today.
