More than 25 years of history
Marine Agency ‘Univis Ltd’ was founded in 1992.
The Company Founders are Helen Bespalova and Vladyslav Surkov, who have been heading the work of the agency to date.
In 1991 Vladyslav Surkov, who had worked at Latvian Shipping Company before, started to work on the vessels under the foreign flags. Upon completion of his contract with an Irish Company, its owners offered Captain Surkov to perform recruitment of Ukrainian Seafarers for their Company on a regular basis.
Helen Bespalova started to organize the Marine Agency and subsequently became its Director. Her communicative and persuading skills, ability to organize and find appreciate solutions made her a true leader and enhanced promotion of the Company.
Owing to efforts and competence of Captain Vladyslav Surkov, who became Managing Director, the company gained new Cleints, such as shipping companies of Greece, Cyprus, England, Germany, Japan and Canada.
Today, in terms of turnover, ‘Univis’ is the third crewing company in Ukraine. However, we are the first one among the independent crewing companies. For the past decades, the staff of the company has increased up to 50 employees, each of whom is highly professional!
