Welcome to NAESS Shipping Philippines, Inc., We are a 100% Filipino owned Ship Manning and Ship Management agency based in Manila, Philippines.
At NAESS Shipping we see to it that the total development of people shall remain our enduring interest, and that our manner of operation shall never compromise our integrity.
NAESS SHIPPING PHILIPPINES, INC. was born on October 24, 1980 with the signing of the documents by Capt. Pablo Gutierrez and Mr. Arturo Piree at the Army Navy Club in Manila. Our first office had a staff of merely five employees at the mezzanine of the Pennville Building on Leon Guinto Street, Malate, Upon approval and registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission, in December of the same year, initial manning operations began with a modest number of 25 vessels. Within three years, we were able to acquire and transfer to our own office at 2215 Leon Guinto St., Malate.
Barely a decade of operations found NAESS SHIPPING PHILIPPINES, INC. in the service of eight principals, reaching the 100-mark of enrolled vessels with the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration ( POEA )-a positive confirmation and sure sign of the Shipping Industry's acceptance and approval of our manning services. With business at its peak, on the first week of October 1991, the property we had acquired and held office in since 1983 was reconstructed into the 4-storey building that presently stands on Leon Guinto today.
Capt. Vicente Oca
PIONEERS at NSP include such visionaries and legends in their own fields as then Commandant of the Philippines Coast Guard, Rear Admiral Simeon Alejandro, Commodore Ponciano Bautista, Capt. Vicente S. Oca, Mr. Arturo Piree, Capt. Pablo Gutierrez, Dr. Ramon J. Ongsiako, Jr. Atty. Salvador Britanico and Crewing Manager, Capt. Norberto Tapia.
Today, led by the young and gregarious Mr. Pedro Miguel F. Oca as President, NSP enjoys the trust and confidence of its foreign principals, equipping ships with the best trained, skilled and able-bodied seamen in the business. Among these companies are the Reefership Marine Services, Limited., Kuwait Oil Tanker Co. SAK, Van Ommeren Germany GmbH, Asahi Shipping Co., Ltd., New Shipping Kaisha Limited. and Dockwise N.V.
NSP's concern does not end in just the honing of skills of its seamen, but also in their total development and use of the right values and attitudes. The total development of our seafarers remains the focus of NAESS SHIPPING PHILIPPINES, INC. because we believe that it is our responsibility to help every person under our employ achieve his greatest potential, and that in order to do this, there must be an on-going growth experience in all aspects: the strengthening of one's moral fiber as well as physical; the encouragement of a healthy respect for the total self-- for one's dignity as well as for one's trade. One affects the other and can never be separated. Commitment and attitude are every bit as important as any perfected skill. Thus, character formation must be an integral part of any skills training, a priority policy NSP seeks to implement.
