ISS Expands Services. Buys Marine Surveying Company.

Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), the world’s leading maritime services provider, is expanding its services into the maritime survey sector following its acquisition of Christy & Griffin, a leading marine surveying and consultancy business in New South Wales.

The acquisition is an important milestone in the development of ISS Australia which will not only expand its service profile into marine surveying, but also develop its goal of delivering a unique broad range of services to the maritime industry in Australasia.

Founded in 1966, Christy & Griffin is now one of the leading regional survey companies in Australia with multi-port operations covering New South Wales, and Victoria, with associates in Queensland and Western Australia.

The company offers an extensive survey and consultancy range of ship and cargo surveys (quality, quantity and damage inspections) to vessel surveys (draft, stowage and bunker) flag state audit, and Port Captain Services to P&I work. Christy and Griffin’s diversity extends to bulk cargo handling, 3D stockpile mapping, land transport logistics and together with ISS branch offices, is now offering marine insurance inspections on a national scale.

Christy & Griffin will continue to operate as an independent company and all six permanent employees will remain with the business. Danny Rees, General Manager, ISS Australia says: “This new partnership will combine our existing network with Christy & Griffin’s core capability to offer world class marine surveying service combined with our wider geographical presence and integrated service range.”

Adds Chris Brown, Senior Surveyor and General Manager, Christy & Griffin: “We are excited about expanding the business with ISS to offer new locations within the Australasia region and the synergies with other survey products within its global business.”
