Recognized as one of the leading seabased manning agencies in the Philippines, BSM Crew Service Centre Philippines, Inc. (BSM-CSC-PH) was formed on 01 July 2003 following the merger between Philippine Hanse and Hammonia Marine Services. Philippine Hanse Ship Agency was incorporated in 1979 and Hammonia Marine Services was incorporated in 1981. Both companies serviced the SCHULTE GROUP OF COMPANIES by recruiting and supplying competent, experienced and well trained seafarers for the Group and its international clients.The staff members of both Philippine Hanse and Hammonia were integrated within BSM-CSC-PH thus providing our Principals and their seafarers with wealth of experience from the outset and of course dedicated service with a smile.
BSM-CSC-PH has undoubtedly benefited from the almost 60 years combined experience of its forerunners in the Philippine manning industry. We continue to build on the invaluable experience so far gained and have good standing with Government Agencies, Maritime Unions, Manning Associations, Training Centers, Medical Clinics, P&I correspondents and the likes. Our reputation was rewarded in 1989 when the company was elevated into the POEA Hall of Fame and we continue to frequently receive Awards of Excellence and Citations from POEA.
Year 2010 was a milestone in the Company’s history when the President of the Republic of the Philippines handed over to BSM Crew Service Centre Phils., Inc. as one of the nine awardees from the sea based sector in the manning industry, the first ever “Presidential Award of Excellence” in recognition of our exemplary performance in promoting decent and quality overseas employment for Filipinos as well as for pioneering achievement, industry leadership and enterpreneurial initiatives.
BSM-CSC-PH operates from a modern, office in City of Manila. Our location allows for easy access to Government Agencies, Training Centers, and Medical Clinics as well as to the International Airport. The office provides us with a comfortable working environment from which we redeploy ex seafarers and recruit of both experienced and fresh graduates to augment the pool we draw on and to service an increasing number of vessels.
