The Moundreas family name appeared in the Piraeus market for the first time as a shipping services entity in 1919. Since then, regardless of the political and economic circumstances, it has always stood by the side of its numerous clients, playing an important role in the development of the shipping industry in Greece.
In the years following World War II, the company expanded rapidly as a second generation emerged alongside the founders. The firm successfully claimed a significant share of market activity in chartering and sale and purchase of second-hand vessels. In particular, it acted as a pioneer through fostering strong ties with the socialist countries of Eastern Europe, opening up the Chinese market for chartering and conducting some of the first second-hand sale and purchase transactions for Japanese vessels.
An internal reorganisation led to the establishment of GEORGE MOUNDREAS & COMPANY, S.A. in 1974. Under the wise guidance of the late Sotiris Moundreas (+1987), a legendary name in the Piraeus shipbroking world, his son George S. Moundreas took charge of the company's future development and guided it to its current position of strength and high reputation.
The new century has brought to the forefront the third generation of family management of GEORGE MOUNDREAS & COMPANY, S.A. Today, the President's sons, Pavlos Moundreas (Vice Persident) and Vassilis Moundreas (Director), promise many more years of continuity and success in the future.
