Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd has announced that two of its subsidiaries, Taiyo Nippon Kisen Co. Ltd and Escobal Japan Ltd will be merged in July 2017 and tentatively scheduled to be renamed ”K” Line RORO and Bulk Ship Management Co. Ltd. on in April.
“K” Line Group aims to achieve synergy for all members of society by making continuous efforts to ensure safe and reliable navigation.
This merger will insure a success of the reorganisation of the structure of the group’s ship management system to a further and higher level by consolidation of the extensive experience and valuable know-how accumulated within the two respective companies during their long histories, which will successfully realise more secure and environmental-friendly services that will meet the day-by-day increasing demand for reduction of environmental load toward a sustainable and livable world.
“K” Line will hold three deeply-specialised and highly-experienced ship management companies after the merger: “K” Line Ship Management Company Ltd. dedicated to containerships, tankers and gas carriers, “K” Line LNG Shipping (UK) Limited to LNG carriers, and Taiyo Nippon Kisen Co., Ltd. to car carriers and dry bulk carriers. This new and highly-professional management system definitely will further improve and upgrade future services with higher quality and greater security.
