The Schulte Group and the Cyprus Ports Authority signalled a new chapter in their 47-year-long partnership with the inauguration ceremony of the upgraded BSM (Bernard Schulte Shipmanagement) Maritime Training Centre Workshop Training Facility.

Held in conjunction with the Maritime Cyprus Conference, the ceremony was officiated by Yiannis Sykas, BSM’s Director of Strategy and Product Development, and Nicos Nicolaides, Mayor of Limassol. The ceremony took place at the BSM Maritime Training Centre in the presence of officials and representatives from both organisations as well as from the local and global shipping industry.

Sykas said: “Our shared history began in 1972 when the Schulte Group Chairman, Dr Heinrich Schulte, one of the founding fathers of the Cyprus shipping industry, first set foot on Cyprus and established Hanseatic Shipping Co. (now part of BSM), the first shipmanagement company on the island. Today, more than ever, we believe the strength of the Schulte Group lies in the strength of our people and investing in our people’s training remains a strategic priority. This joint initiative between the Cyprus Ports Authority and the Schulte Group represents a joint commitment towards furthering our partnership and building on the values of the Cyprus maritime community.”
