Klaveness Maritime Agency celebrates 35 years of providing seafarers with bloodletting event in partnership with the Red Cross


Klaveness Maritime Agency, Inc. (KMA) was established in 1984 to support Torvald Klaveness crewing activities. Today the company has expanded its activities to also support crew management for third party vessels and had reason to celebrate as the company turned 35 this year.

Over the years, KMA has staffed a variety of carriers. In the beginning we manned pure bulk carriers and today we have moved onto more specialized carriers such as the combination carriers that are part of the current fleet. The seafarers take part in development programs that enable them to stay up to date and renew their skills as requirements change. Most of our seafarers are therefore trained for more than one type of vessel, which equips them with a broader skill-set than most seafarers.

Celebrating our loyal, hardworking and dedicated seafarers

The success of the company can be credited to the loyal, hardworking, dedicated and committed seafarers and their families. Especially the wives of crew members, who have sacrificed valuable family time in order to supply crew to the vessels. We thank you for that!

Giving back through bloodletting

Staff wanted to commemorate this milestone through a sponsored bloodletting activity in cooperation with the Red Cross. With the support and help from its sister-company, Klaveness Shore Services Inc and the Seamen’s Wives Association of Klaveness (SWAK) the turn-up was a great success!

Happy 35th Anniversary!
