77 175 YEARS OF SAFETY AND SUPPORT AT SEA In 1833 Em. Z. Svitzer built his salvage business on a careful blend of well suited vessels, skilful employees, comprehensive relationships and information networks, cooperation with the local communities and operations at strategically important locations. Combining this focus with an ability to recognize the need to adjust and change, SVITZER has overcome tough competitive circumstances, economic recessions, world crises and fundamental technological and market changes for more than 175 years. Engaged mainly with salvage during its fi rst hundred years, SVITZER expanded into towage, offshore and the emergency response/rescue sector. Becoming part of the A.P. Moller-Maersk Group enabled SVITZER to position itself among the largest towage and response operators in the world. The strength of the company has been intensifi ed by a portfolio of business sectors, which complement each other well and enable SVITZER to develop new markets through valuable relationships with customers, authorities and business associates around the world – in many ways a strategy not unlike the founding and historical principles. Today, more than 4,000 SVITZER employees operate some 500 vessels in more than 35 countries, placing SVITZER in a global position as strong as ever.
