In the niche market of specialist marine services, black empowerment company SMIT Amandla Marine has a track record in Southern Africa that is without comparison. Utilising specialist human and hardware resources, the company is in tune with its clients’ needs and tailors solutions to suit their individual requirements. This is one of the company’s competitive advantages along with its commitment to the ongoing development of its skills base. The company was formed in 2005 with the sale of 30 percent of its operations to black shareholders and an inclusive Employee Trust that benefits more than 450 employees. This means the people of SMIT Amandla Marine have a vested interest in the company’s sustainability and growth. SMIT Amandla Marine ascribes to the ethos of SHE-Q in all that it does – which encompasses adherence to strict safety, health, environmental protection and quality guidelines and requirements.

The company’s services include: In-Port Bunker Delivery; Management of Offshore Tanker Terminals; Offshore Supply & Support; Coastal & Ocean Towage; Environmental Protection & Emergency Response; Commercial Vessel Management and Habour Towage.

In the seven years since the company was formed as a black empowered maritime service provider, it has made significant strides in developing and attracting new entrants to a career at sea and working with other industry players to ensure investments made in people realise returns for employees and the company alike.
