The following announcement comes from the TSAVLIRIS SALVAGE GROUP:
It is with great pleasure that Tsavliris Salvage Group announces the induction of their founder, Alexander G. Tsavliris, to the Greek Shipping Hall of Fame on Friday 29th November 2013 at the Lloyd’s List Greek Shipping Awards.
Today’s Tsavliris Salvage Group can trace its origins to the early 1920s when Alexander G. Tsavliris first arrived in Piraeus from Asia Minor as a refugee. He was among the first shipowners who supported the development of Piraeus as a maritime centre, he became a leading owner of dry cargo ships and is mostly remembered for putting Greece on the international map for salvage operations. He never forgot his own humble origins and, during his lifetime, hundreds of people benefited from his quiet generosity.
On behalf of the late Alexander G. Tsavliris, Tsavliris Salvage Group would like to express their immense gratitude to the Greek Shipping Community for the honour bestowed upon their founder for all time.
