German Renewables Shipbrokers is now called Global Renewables Shipbrokers. The company is underscoring the fact that from Hamburg it operates around the world and not only in Germany.

Four years after founding GRS German Renewables Shipbrokers GmbH, the German specialist shipbroker is giving itself a new name. “Adopting a global mind-set to the way we operate is what our business does each day. So it was logical that we wanted the company’s name to reflect this aspect”, says Philippe Schönefeld, GRS managing partner. “From now on, the word German will be replaced by Global Renewables Shipbrokers”. Matthias Mross, who is also managing partner at GRS, adds: “Changing our company name shores up our growth philosophy”. And growth for GRS is more than just a philosophy. By rapidly penetrating the international offshore market for renewable energy, GRS has become one of the European market leaders.

Of course, a new name also requires a new website. The company is already online at www.grs-offshore.com. All other contact details, such as phone numbers of contacts remain unchanged. The same of course applies to GRS’s portfolio of services. Through GRS all customers will continue to have access to offshore tonnage and offshore equipment for chartering, purchasing and sales.

Established in 2011, GRS is an independent specialist shipbroker for chartering, purchasing and sales, specialized in offshore tonnage and equipment for the renewable energy industry. The team has been constantly living up to the company’s motto “Any Vessel Anytime”, which involves monitoring market prices and availabilities of offshore vessels for their clients on an ongoing basis. GRS can draw on suitable tonnage for each stage of an offshore project. Customized market analyses and market reports are also part of GRS’s service portfolio.
