It has been over a century since the Wallem was introduced to the Far East. Haakon J. Wallem started the company in Shanghai in 1898. By 1925 the decision had been taken to expand operations beyond Shanghai and a company was setup in Hongkong. When Haakon Wallem died in 1951, his company was of the most reputable ship management and broking houses in South East Asia.
The 1950-1960 saw further opportunities for the Wallem Group to expand its activities. The late 1960-70s saw a vast expansion of Hongkong ship-owning activities through ordering of new buildings in Japan with long terms charters to Japanese industrial groups.
To further its base, Wallem opened associates offices in the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Australia, and Japan. It also selectively brought shipowners into partnerships in offshore oil rigs during the period 1967-1977. By the time markets had appeared to peak in 1980/81 the group, as the matter of policy, had sold their ships and rigs across the board-just before the prices dropped dramatically.
Now it's more than a century, Wallem has seen many innovations and changes indeed in many aspect of its business Wallem has initiated them. Wallem is able to look back at the past with price. From the experience and knowledge acquired, Wallem can look forward to serving its clients well in the future.
