Even though it has been a major player in the cement industry for decades, Seament Holding started small, just like any other business. It's interesting to think about how one set of hands could start something that would go on to be so gargantuan, but that is precisely what happened when Alex Bouri conceptualized Seament. Let's examine how far this fifty-plus year-old company got to where it is today.
It was in 1961 that Seament transactions began; in their first years, they claimed the title of the first cement company to do bulk shipments. The immense success made it plausible them to acquire their first vessel just seven years later, which would allow them to broaden their clientele to many other countries around the world. By 1973 the company shipped out over 2 million tons of cement yearly on average.
At some point, business growth and heightened demand called for bigger ships. Thus, Seabulk Shipping was born, a company that could ship mass quantities of building materials. It started as just a small business ran out of Greece, but grew exponentially. Before they knew it, the top cement companies worldwide began employing these services, as it was extremely useful for gaining customers – Seabulk could ship to nearly any port. When the size of their shipments became too large for the receiving ports to handle, the floating terminal was born.
Since the dawn of the floating terminal, Seament is now a company that is recognized worldwide. Its revolutionary concept has allowed several countries to emerge from their cement crises and begin industrializing once more. As of a decade ago, Seament Holding now both manufactures and ships cement and continues to provide solutions for lesser-privileged countries.
