A Heroic Team
11/06/2017
The owner-family and pictured employees completed a heroic act of dedicating their whole weekend, working relentlessly to set up our new office.

We would like extend a massive TEŞEKKÜRLER to those who dedicated all their free time on the weekend to help the owner family complete 2 out of 5 floors of the rented office building.

We worked side by side, day and night, with sweat and tears, pouring out our hearts and souls to make this happen. From Monday, 12.06.2017 on wards, our employees will start working at the new permanent office on Muallim Naci Cad. No 47.

We took all those employees out for a kebap lunch (those who were not fasting or unavaliable).

Second Launching of the Season
01/06/2017
Despite the events on Thursday, the sun shone brightly in Selah Shipyard for the launching of the Atlantis Alicante, the 10th Newbuilding of the company, into the Marmara Sea on 01.06.2017. 

As with the Alicante's sister vessel -  the Atlantis Augusta - the contruction process was smooth and with the frequent visits of Management and implementation of lessons learnt from the delivery of the Augusta, an effective familiarization process has ensued. 

We would like to extend our gratitude to Selah Shipyard and their contractors who put in a huge amount of effort to make this moment happen.

Furthermore we would also like to thank our subcontractors like class Bureau Veritas, designers Delta Marine, Akzo Nobel and MarineLine, and last but not least Armona’s experienced construction and office team - who have worked tirelessly during the construction of both newbuildings. The passion and work ethic they exhibited serve as a model to all company staff.
 
With this launching, the company grows ever closer to a fleet growth of 50% in a year that saw the number of fleet vessels grow from 8 to 12.

Press Release
01/06/2017
To all our friends who are worried about today’s news:

This morning at 5 AM the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality sent over a building wreckage team to our office premises in Kuruçesme Istanbul to tear down the buildings we own.
The background of the story is: the original building which was built in the 1920’s was restored by us in 2006 using steel reinforcement. This was in order to make the buildings earthquake proof – providing a safer working place for all employees and tenants after the devastating earthquake in 1999, where approx. 20,000 people lost their lives.

However, at the time of our reconstruction of the buildings the planning permission committee was still enforcing an outdated real-estate law that did not permit the use of any material other than the original ones with which the buildings were built with. The building was made from part stone and part concrete. The planning commission in-officially permitted the reinforcement, however after the press published articles on some illegally built constructions in 2008, they took a committee decision to get a court order to tear down the steel reinforcement.

More recently, in 2010, the planning permissions committee changed the legal framework of reconstructions and updated the outdated law, permitting the usage of other materials. Nevertheless, that decision was not sufficient to be able to reverse the tear down decision of 2008.

The decision was now enforced after exactly 10 years (legally speaking, outside of the statute of limitations). Last week the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality’s (IBB) clean-up operations began with tearing down the world-renowned nightclub Reina, and the restaurants on the Galatasaray Island Su Ada. Rumors indicate that these measures were taken against the Mayor of Istanbul, who is linked to the Gülen movement. We have been able to remove all our belongings. Since 10 AM our teams are back at work in two interim office locations which provide the interim facilities we need in order to continue operations. Our mail system and all phones are working, the safe operation of our fleet vessels is assured. Within a fortnight we will have moved into a permanent new office.

We would like to extend our upmost gratitude to all family and friends who have called & offered their support – expressing their condolences.
