History


 Continuous innovation and inclusive growth has been the major theme of Hartmann Crew Philippines.

        Since its inception in 2002, Hartmann Crew Philippines (HCP) was formerly known as  Associated Ship Management (ASM). For thirteen years it carried that name up until 2015 when it re-branded to become Hartmann Crew Philippines.  

        The change in name was an initiative to align the company with its principal partner in Germany: Hartmann AG and to reaffirm its membership to the Hartmann Group . The new name paved the way for the actions of HCP as it moves forward and progresses alongside a new era of shipping. There has been no change in management or in the values upheld by the company.

        Hartmann Crew Philippines (HCP) is a POEA-licensed manning agency compliant to ISO 9001 :2008 with 3,600 global maritime professionals on a fleet of over 150 vessels which include: oil tankers, gas tankers, product tankers, container ships, multi-purpose vessels, and bulk carriers.

         Hartmann Crew Philippines is the sole crewing company of the Hartmann Group in the Philippines.
