MLV Marine awarded Best Marine Communication / Navigation Systems Specialists at MEA Business Awards 2022

MLV Marine Ltd is a Marine Technical service supplier based in Cyprus that excels in supplying high-quality products alongside excellent customer service. Here is a little insight into how the company operates and what makes the team tick, and it is clear to see why they have achieved such success in the industry.

It is extremely important that you can find a supplier or manufacturer that is both communicative whilst also delivering a high-quality product, MLV Marine does precisely that. The company provides reliable marine services to Major clients and partners all around the world, as well as supplying spare parts to any nautical vessels that need assistance. An added benefit introduced to the company sees the expert team offer technical support to clients globally.

Whilst technology has consistently advanced over the past few years, some companies still have always been ahead of the curve. This has never been more evident than with MLV Marine, who have stolen a march in the maritime sector on others. This is partly thanks to the experience that the Technical team within the company can boast about. There are highly trained engineers with over 20 years of experience in the Marine industry, which takes time to come about. In addition, the company provides flexibility for clients as the team is available at short notice and can travel the world whenever required by the client.

As an expert in the sector, MLV Marine is a Marine Technical Service Supplier which provides significant brands with a range of equipment related to nautical vessels. In addition, the company can assist with and supply communication equipment technical services, installations, surveys, and repairs. The company also boasts a team with a global service network that can help with 24/7 service repairs. All aspects of the company have been built with one aim in mind – to keep vessels sailing.

To achieve its goal of keeping vessels sailing, the team has to be on a journey that they all believe in. Here’s what Deputy General Manager Andrew Zambas believes is crucial to their success, “You would generally hear about the 10 points.

of success of any business, but for any company to be successful, the first thing to look at is the company’s 10 Core Values. Our team operates and follows our values daily. Below are our MLV MARINE core values which we honour.

“The company and our employees operate with honesty; trust; loyalty; sense of urgency; dedication; customer orientation; attention to detail; evolving and growing; acknowledging employees; teamwork; respect; and finally, High quality standards.”

Andrew went on to speak about where the values come from and how he encourages his employees to follow this way of thinking, “’SEEK THE FOREST AND NOT THE TREE’ is the first thing I learnt and heard from my mentor, Owner and Managing director, Stephen Calligeris, when I first started with him more than five years ago. This has stuck with me on a business and personal level, which is critical in allowing any trusting partnership to flourish and prevail. It can be regarding an employee, client, supplier, or partner. Always invest in building long- lasting relationships and partnerships for the future.

“For me, it is an honour, and I am proud to be part of MLV Marine and my hard work has been rewarded with me being appointed Deputy General manager after five years in the shipping industry.”

You can see the evidence as to why MLV Marine can deliver such a great experience to clients. The team’s ability to be on hand to help out clients when they require assistance is an unrivalled quality throughout the sector. It is always something the MLV Marine team are keen to point out to potential clients. Whilst quality service and products are of the utmost importance, without availability, the products are essentially worthless. MLV Marine ensures that clients get the highest quality service and that the team are always available.

Overall, it is clear why MLV Marine has achieved the success they have. There is plenty of belief and trust amongst the staff. They work as a team, and the company will continue to expand.
In an industry where reliability and communication are crucial, MLV Marine certainly has the keys. It’s impressive to see the company grow from year to year.

MLV Marine Awarded by “YoungShip Cyprus” and “The Youth Board of Cyprus”

MLV Marine are beyond excited & proud to let you know that our Managing Director, Mr. Stephen Calligeris has been awarded by YoungShip Cyprus & The Youth Board of Cyprus with the “YoungShip Innovation & Entrepreneurship Award for 2020”. This award was given to Stephen Calligeris in recognition of his significant contribution in the Cyprus maritime industry, as during the Covid-19 pandemic he has found MLV Marine with an aim to provide reliable marine technical services, installation, surveys, spare parts supply, and technical support.

Unfortunately, due to the extraordinary restrictive and protective measures of Covid-19 the last few months, the YoungShip Cyprus’ president Mr. Varnavas presented the award to our Managing Director only yesterday (30/3/2021) – “Stephen is an active and trusted young shipping professional in Cyprus who has built up a solid reputation and managed to setup his own startup company after many years of hard work and dedication in the maritime industry. This award is recognition of that and we hope Stephen continues to add value the Shipping community of Cyprus. YoungShip members may look up to him and Stephen has expressed his interest to mentor some of our YoungShip members if ever the need arises.”

Mr. Calligeris receiving the award goes on to say, “By receiving this award it makes me feel proud of my colleagues who have made MLV Marine what it is today within one year of operations, I am happy that my colleagues have trusted in my vision and supported me like family and the atmosphere within MLV is one of a positive and productive nature, with their help, we have made MLV into a trusted partner/supplier for many in such a short space of time and we collectively thank all of our trusted partners and clients who have put their trust in MLV. I am proud of what we have achieved as a team and especially during particularly tough times (COVID19) were a number of companies where fighting for survival, closing or downsizing, MLV was starting up and expanding. For the foreseeable future, MLV will continue to strive to become established as a recognised global name.

We are proud to have our Managing Director, Stephen Calligeris, featured in the Cyprus National English Newspaper – Cyprus Mail.

Back in 2006, Stephen Calligeris made two difficult decisions: First, he decided to move from London to Cyprus, leaving a solid corporate job with engineering giant Bombardier. At the same time, he changed careers, moving from aircraft engineering to marine electronics, at a startup marine services firm in Limassol.

“They were two of the best decisions I’ve ever made,” Calligeris told the Cyprus Mail in an interview. Today, based in Larnaca, he owns a marine electronics business that is well-known throughout the entire Levant for innovation.

Stephen Calligeris

The 40-year-old Calligeris, whose father is from Patras, Greece and whose mother is from Varosi, Cyprus, worked with four startup firms over the years, and each one turned out well. He also built up a solid reputation in marine electronics, in particular as an expert with Satellite Communication and Voyage Data Recorders (VDRs) – commonly known of as ‘Black Boxes,’ the data gathering equipment on planes and ships that enables reconstructing the history in case of accident.

In 2011, he was rushed to the scene of an oil tanker hijacking in Oman, and the world watched as he retrieved the critical data.

But Calligeris built up a solid network while helping the startups he joined to grow. “I decided to be service-centric, instead of trying to sell products. There are lots of marine businesses in Cyprus that focus on selling expensive equipment. But shipping businesses here need someone who can repair that equipment and preserve the firm’s investment,” he noted.

“I chose to move to Cyprus because I had confidence in its future. Even back then the shipping industry was growing, and I thought the Cyprus economy would too. There were other young people in marine services here who felt the same way. It wasn’t a perfectly straight way to get ahead, but it did take me there,” Calligeris insisted.

Even with all his experience, starting his own company, MLV Marine,  in 2020, took courage, he says. “You have confidence, in yourself, in the industry, in Cyprus, but the risk is real,” he said. Calligeris risked his own money to start the business, with no loans of any kind. “It is better to start out without any debt, to limit the pressure while you are taking the first steps,” he adds.

Calligeris took the new company into cutting-edge areas for his field, like automated monitoring of alarms and engine controls – and these proved to be successful.

Last Friday, Calligeris’s  achievements culminated in his receiving the YoungShip Cyprus Association’s ‘Entrepreneur / Innovator’ of the Year award for 2020.

“Stephen is an active and trusted young shipping professional in Cyprus who has built up a solid reputation and managed to setup his own startup company after many years of hard work and dedication in the maritime industry,” said  Antonis Varnava, President of Youngship Cyprus in presenting the award.

MLV Marine offers a number of services, including technical service for electronic and communication equipment, surveys and repairs as well as providing a 24/7 global service network.

Like so many successful entrepreneurs, Calligeris found time to start other companies. He has a Larnaca-based SAP technical support company called SC Silver Consultancy Ltd., which works with companies around the world specialising in SAP software support and development. And he’s opened the first independent co-working space,, in Larnaca as well.

“There will be more to come, no doubt,” Calligeris said. “I’m part of a community now, and that makes it all possible. What’s more, Cyprus is evolving, and there are many opportunities to succeed here.”
