Since its founding in 1972, Taiyo Sangyo Trading & Marine Service LTD. has been and will always be a pioneer in the maritime industry, diving headfirst into new eras. As a key player of the founding of the International Seafarers Labor Association, we established manning resources in the Philippines ahead of others amidst the steep rise in seafarer costs, as well as new manning resources from the Vietnamese. Our roster boasts over 3,000 seafarers, a huge family capable of staffing up to 90 vessels (which include our company ships, management ships, and manned ships).
