Close proximity to our customers, the global shipping industry, stakeholders, OEMs and governing bodies is a vital element of our approach at Lubmarine.


It helps us continually review our activities in line with the needs of the shipping industry – both in the here and now and crucially to help our teams design product and service solutions in line with its future needs right across shipping’s international supply chain.


One example of this is our membership of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber which acts as a lobbying group for the promotion and safeguarding the interests of its professional Member-companies, through its membership and involvement in a range of regional and international ship owners associations.


Lubmarine is a long-term International Associate Member of the Chamber, which has enjoyed considerable growth since its establishment in January 1989. From its origins with 17 original members, the Chamber today comprises approximately 200 major ship owning, ship management, chartering and shipping related companies based either in Cyprus or abroad, collectively employing around 9,000 people ashore and more than 55,000 seafarers of various nationalities on-board their vessels.


The Chamber's primary objective is to assist the Cyprus Government at all levels to adapt new and existing laws, policies and procedures to the needs of the Cyprus fleet and the resident Shipping Industry to help raise quality, improve safety and protect the environment. 


The Chamber itself is also an active member and participator in a number of leading international shipping bodies including the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS), the European Community Shipowners' Associations (ECSA), the Baltic and International Maritime Council (BIMCO) and the International Association of Independent Tanker Owners (INTERTANKO).


Members of the Chamber also regularly participate in many international meetings, including the International Labour Organisation (ILO), International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and the European Union (EU) meetings.


“Cyprus is a key location for the world’s shipping industry and as a result a strategic location for us to support our customers through our lubrication and technical and digital service solutions,” says Lubmarine Greece Country Manager Anna Economou.


“We are proud to have been a member of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber for many years and have enjoyed being part of its growth to become a key body within the international shipping industry, with the collaborations, discussions and aims that being a member offers, delivering valuable insights and benefits to us,” added Anna.


The membership of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber is part of Lubmarine’s wider membership and sponsorship of other maritime organizations around the World including maritime academies, the International Seafarers Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN), Au Rad’lo, and Plastic Odyssey.
