Our Guarantee

Supplying seafarers to meet specific qualifications and crewing requirements of vessels quickly and at reasonable costs is El Greco Ship Manning and Management’s guarantee.

Our Foundations

Founder and president of El Greco, Peter N. Toundjis, possessed the foresight to start a crewing agency 30 years ago. His vision was that the employment of Filipino seafarers and crew would flourish, providing employment for Filipinos, contributing to the economy of the Philippines, and meeting the needs of ship owners.  He worked with the Government of the Philippines to form policies, regulations and government agencies that would encourage growth and regulate the industry.

Our company is family owned. For two generations we have adhered to a policy of maintaining the high standards required by our principals.

36 Years of Experience

Thirty years’ of fulfilling crew requirements has equipped us with not only experience and knowledge but also with vast amounts of information gathered from interviewing, training, and handling the documents of seafarers and crew.

The second generation of the family advanced company operating methods and management. Response time to ship owners’ needs was shortened through a computer system that matched seafarer to a company and its vessels. Our database contains particulars of 100,000 Filipinos and the 500 vessels they have worked on.

Using this database, our company has supplied full crews for dry cargo vessels, bulk carriers, container vessels, product tankers, oil tankers, VLCCs, cattle carriers, OBOs, cruise liners, high-speed passenger ferries, and yachts.

The checking and verification methods we use make certain the seafarers we supply possess the training, skills, and qualifications as stated in their certificates and licenses, and that they meet the STCW’78 convention standards as amended in 1995, as well as the ISM code.

Benefits of our services to ship owners:

Family owned makes us flexible and fast in our decision making; quick to respond to requests; and available to principals at any time.

Thirty six years of providing these services have given us an insight into government departments and agencies, and the experience and contacts to successfully negotiate on behalf of principals.

Long-established, Filipino-owned, our own office building, investments in a port and terminal. These are our assurances you will be working with a group that is permanent, secure and reliable.
