TSAVLIRIS SALVAGE GROUP Annual Pitta Cutting New Year Event 2012 - 2012 Jan 25
The pitta cutting for TSAVLIRIS SALVAGE GROUP is an important traditional celebration which, as usual, took place at the premises of the Piraeus-based international salvage group. Present: all employees, dear friends and close associates.
2011 was a great year for TSAVLIRIS, having signed 16 LOF's, i.e. more than any other salvor, and having performed a further 9 significant towage operations. More notably, Mr. Andreas A. Tsavliris was elected President of the International Salvage Union in September, the first Greek ISU President in the history of the organization, which is a great honour for Tsavliris.
The ceremony included a blessing (with holy water) by a priest and in conclusion, Mr. Mr. Nicolas A. Tsavliris honored Mr. Evaggelos Pentaris, a former Captain of the Group's founder, Alexander G. Tsavliris, 50 years ago in 1962. Mr. Pentaris fondly told everyone of his time working on the "FOTINI TSAVLIRIS", a Greek flag Liberty vessel with an all Greek crew, and recalled experiences with prominent ship-owners of those times. The pitta was cut and Mr. George A. Tsavliris was the lucky one who won the "charm". A reception followed during which guests and staff enjoyed a pleasant festive event.
