Since the beginning in 1961 Grieg Star took part in the fast-growing worldwide trade in wood pulp and paper. These commodities originally accounted for most of it’s business. However, as the benefits of the specialised ships became evident, other industries have also come to prefer Grieg Star’s service.
As part of the Grieg Group the company share common values and a commitment to corporate responsibility, ethical business conduct and the environment.
Grieg Star’s specialised ships are built to meet the customers’ high quality requirements and to deliver superior cargo care. Highly qualified seafarers, trained for the operations, man the ships. A high return rate among the crew is emphasised to ensure familiarity with the ships and operational requirements.
Grieg Star focuses on long-term competence development both onboard and ashore. In-house ship management ensures safe and efficient operation. Safety and security of employees, the environment, cargoes and ships have the highest priority.
