SMT SHIPPING (Cyprus) Ltd has been selected as a winner of the 2017 CIPA International Investment Awards. The award was presented to Anthonius J. Voorham, Owner SMT SHIPPING (Cyprus) Ltd. Over twenty-five years ago, Anthonius Voorham and three partners decided to create a ship-management company based on the principles of integrity, teamwork and quality. They quickly understood that Cyprus would be the ideal location for such a venture, given the country’s well-developed shipping sector, its professional and educated labour force and its welcoming approach to international business. As a result, in 1990 the four founders established what is known today as SMT Shipping (Cyprus) Ltd. SMT’s reputation has grown steadily and it now has five offices and numerous business ventures throughout Europe, Asia, and the Americas. The company has over 40 vessels under management, representing a variety of asset types. SMT has 34 local employees in Limassol, and this year it deepened its commitment to Cyprus by purchasing a new building in the Ayios Athanasios district of Limassol serves as its new headquarters.
