TO OUR READERS AND BUSINESS ASSOCIATES IN THE INDUSTRY:
In light of recent press reports alleging involvement in illegal exports and questioning its commitment to clean and safe ship recycling, Global Marketing Systems (GMS) wishes to make clear that it will take all necessary legal steps to protect its reputation from unfair, damaging and defamatory comments.
Neither GMS nor anyone associated with GMS has been convicted of any alleged export of toxic vessels or in violation of any regulations governing the safe and sound recycling of end-of-life vessels. GMS has strict compliance checks in place to ensure that the sale and purchase of vessels by our principals are within the law.
GMS has always been an ally in the struggle for greener and cleaner ship recycling practices and to promote this collective goal, GMS provides zero cost safety and environmental protection training to recycling workers under its Sustainable and Offshore Ship Recycling Program (https://gmsinc.net/gms_new/index.php/gms-cash-buyer).
Within the recycling and wider maritime community, GMS is viewed as a torchbearer of higher standards, encouraging and assisting numerous ship recyclers in Alang to adopt best business practices and obtain Class NK Certification so as to comply with international standards in particular The Hong Kong International Convention for the Safe and Environmentally Sounds Recycling of Ships (HKC).
GMS is a respected corporation in the shipping community, led by Dr. Sharma who has spent a lifetime building a reputation as a leader in the industry and advocating the cause of safe and sound recycling of end-of-life vessels.
