Bangkok Marine Survey Company Limited : was established in January 1992 with the intention of introducing a professional and International service in Marine Surveying and Consultancy.
The Company was ably managed until the beginning of 1997 by our founding Managing Director the late Captain John D. McNicol. Captain John, as he was affectionately known, sadly passed away after a long illness in March of the same year.
Captain Richard C. Allen, having been a Director of the Company for some years, took over the helm in March 1997, thus ensuring continuity and so enabling the Company to continue providing our clients with the same high standard of service that they have come to expect.
Captain Allen since coming ashore in 1986 has spent over thirty years within the Shipping Industry.
Bangkok Marine Survey Company main office is just a stones throw from Bangkok Port and most of the river berths.
We are therefore; ideally placed to serve clients needs at very short notice. We also have an office at Sri Racha, which is close to the Eastern Seaboard Industrial Area, about 130 kms South of Bangkok from where we can cover the areas of Kohsichang, Sri Racha Harbour and Laem Chabang Port as well as the Ports of Map Ta Phut and Rayong.
The Company workforce numbers some 100 persons and, ably assisted by our Management Team, along with our support staff of well trained surveyors and inspectors, we are in an ideal position to meet all your needs in order to ensure a smooth, trouble free and professional service.
Late In 2019, some restructuring took place whereby Captain Richard after 21 years at the helm was elevated to the position of President.
At this time the company management was also restructured under the combined resources of Captain Richard Allen and Khun Nitikorn Kowattanawongrak Managing Director and Khun Pichit Mungmunsuk General Manager.
