About BW Shipping Philippines

In January 1988, Havtor Management (Philippines) Inc. officially opened its doors with a handful of employees, successfully deploying seafarers in the first month of operations to vessels of Havtor Management, a Norwegian shareowner and co-founder of the company. Since then, the company has grown from strength to strength. In June 1995, Bergesen acquired Havtor and the company changed its name to Bergesen D.Y. Philippines, Inc. In January 2006, the company was renamed BW Shipping Philippines Inc. after the merger of Bergesen with World-Wide Shipping. A dramatic increase of vessels and seafarers employed in the company followed.
Twenty-five years later, the handful of employees has multiplied six times and seafarers a hundredfold and BW Shipping Philippines Inc. is considered one of the top employers of quality seafarers in large gas and tanker fleets.
