When it comes to quality of our service, compromise is not an option. To understand the service provided by CFSharp Crew Management, it is important to be aware of the CFSharp Group’s history that spans decades of corporate transformations and huge expansions.
It was on November 23, 1937, Antonio V. Rocha, President of the Manila Shipping Company and Chester F. Sharp, the General Agent for States Steamship Company in Manila embarked on a partnership by forming a company that was to become one of the country’s enduring and leading corporations in the maritime industry. It was their entrepreneurial flair that helped set the foundation for the modern company that exists today.
C.F. Sharp & Company started out handling sugar export shipments., from which the famous “Sugarcraft Manila” cable address evolved. The company expanded within the Philippines and Southeast Asia, establishing itself as the leading shipping agency in the region.
As the company’s reputation grew, the scope of its business expanded. In 1952 Sharp Travel Service was established. Shortly thereafter, in 1953, C.F. Sharp Singapore with other offices throughout the region were opened.
With the post-World War global industrialization, the world economy began to flourish.– a turning point in C.F. Sharp history. As the world was rebuilding, it opened a huge demand for manpower. C.F. Sharp entered this new era when, in 1963, the company first hired and deployed Filipino seafarers to a foreign-flagged vessel. This paved the way for a new directional diversion towards crewing activities. It was in the 80’s when C.F. Sharp & Company Pte Ltd was established and an international Marketing Office based in the United Kingdom. The expansion of C.F. Sharp continued with the establishment of new companies whose services were designed to complement its core businesses. From C.F. Sharp’s modest beginning in 1937, it has now become a maritime conglomerate on the strength of its vision and enterprising spirit.
