Monjasa said it was opening the new office as it was experiencing increasing demand across the Mediterranean following the setting up of a permanent office in Limassol, Cyprus in 2016.
In 2020, Monjasa supplied a total of 850,000 tonnes of marine fuels across European ports. This year, Monjasa expects to further increase its European volume and deliver close to one million tonnes of fuel products.
For Monjasa, the task is to offer new refuelling solutions to the Greek ship owners - both through Monjasa’s physical supply locations and global trading across 11 sister offices.
Monjasa’s new Greek home is in the Glyfada, afast-growing shipping and commercial hub in Athens, housing some of the world’s largest ship owning companies.
“Our five-years presence in Cyprus has created new standards and expectations for our customers across the Mediterranean. And with Monjasa always available in Athens, we are improving our understanding of the local demand and tightening customer relationships,” says General Manager Mediterranean, Theodoros Mitsingas.
Two of Monjasa’s experienced traders, Trading Director, Mediterranean, Christos Doulaveris and Senior Trader, Minas Tsokopoulos, have relocated from Limassol, Cyprus, to the Greek capital.
Earlier this month, Monjasa also announced the opening of a new office in Houston, USA. Thereby, the new Athens’ office marks the company’s 12th global office location across Europe, the Americas, the Middle East and Africa and Southeast Asia.
Overall, Monjasa controls a fleet of 25 tankers and barges and supplied a total of 4.9 m tonnes of marine fuels in 2020.
