Expansion in the Cypriot Market

IMS Cyprus

Ferryl's cooperation with Interglobe MariNet Services (IMS) in Cyprus is now into its sixth year.

With the original objective of providing Cyprus-based ship-owners and ship-management companies with an informed, local contact, Ferryl is pleased to report on the success of this set-up.

A February visit to Cyprus by Ferryl led to many promising meetings with local clients and revealed future growth areas.

Mr. Chris Savvides, son of IMS's founder George Savvides, is the primary contact person for Cyprus-based customers of Ferryl. With many years of  experience in the shipping industry, including on the purchasing side, Chris not only understands the purchaser's needs and concerns, but has also diligently learned about the Ferryl range. Chris serves as an informed and friendly contact as IMS give local companies a stable ordering system and consistent, reliable service, as evidenced by their ISO 9001:2008 accreditation.

Of course, Cypriot companies benefit from Ferryl's established supply network, covering major ports worldwide. Even though Ferryl focuses on specialised and high quality products for niche areas, they are widely available through an ever-increasing distribution network.

IMS is now looking at expanding their presence in Cyprus through the placement of a local stock in Limassol. Through this local stock IMS intend to cater to the local shipping market as well as industrial customers.
