Hartmann Crew Germany: Hartmann Group launches Crewing Agency in Germany

The youngest addition to the Hartmann Group, Hartmann Crew Germany, recently took up operations. The new company acts as an independent crewing agency especially for German and further European Officers on vessels of Hartmann Gas Carriers and Hartmann Dry Cargo. It is located in the Hartmann Reederei headquarters at “Haus der Schiffahrt” in Leer.

Hartmann Crew Germany offers the recruitment and selection of seafarers in addition to the complete administration package. This comprises Management and Operational level Officers from cadet right up to senior level, hence facilitating career opportunities on a wide range of different vessels.

Jens Grassmann, Managing Director of the new company, states: “The certification of Hartmann Crew Germany for ‘Private placement services in accordance with § 26 of the Maritime Labour Act’ with the German Berufsgenossenschaft (Employer’s Liability Insurance Association) went very smoothly and was successfully completed by beginning of July. Now we put all our efforts in becoming fully operational and to further develop the Agency as a German base for well qualified, motivated and loyal “Hartmann Seamen”.

Hartmann Crew Germany targets a long-term, general expansion of its services. The crewing agency currently evaluates the opening of new fields of business, such as incorporating training and education of seafarers as well as career planning, and probably offering crewing services to third party companies.
