ERMA FIRST, a leading sustainable maritime solutions provider, is hosting its first-ever Agents Meeting in an event intended to celebrate the success of its global agents network and ensure alignment on the group’s vision amid evolving customer requirements.

The inaugural ERMA FIRST Group Agents Meeting, which opens with dinner on the evening of Tuesday, 27 February, sees agents from 22 countries gather at the Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso, Athens. With closed sessions taking place on days two and three – and on-site visits on the final day – the event is exclusively for ERMA FIRST Group employees, agents, and partners.

Founded as a specialist in ballast water treatment systems (BWTS), ERMA FIRST has evolved in line with customer requirements to offer a range of future-proof sustainable maritime solutions including alternative maritime power, data acquisition, energy-saving devices, and carbon capture and storage. As the group’s product offering has expanded, so too has its global reach: the largest manufacturer and supplier of marine equipment in Greece is now also a leader in its field globally.

The group’s international growth has been facilitated by an extensive network of agents – companies and individuals providing ERMA FIRST Group products and services to customers worldwide. The inaugural Agents Meeting is an opportunity for ERMA FIRST to not only celebrate its agents’ contribution but also ensure their alignment on the group’s vision: to continue providing cutting-edge sustainable solutions that anticipate the needs of a fast-changing industry.

Konstantinos Stampedakis, Co-Founder & Managing Director, ERMA FIRST, said: “We are excited to be hosting our inaugural ERMA FIRST Group Agents Meeting, which brings agents from 22 countries together, in our home of Athens, for the very first time. In recent years, we have transitioned from a ballast water management specialist to a sustainable maritime solutions provider, but our commitment to the BWTS segment remains strong, and we continue to develop our offering with future-proof products and services that address evolving customer requirements.” Eleni Polychronopoulou, President, ERMA FIRST, added: “ERMA FIRST is a forward-looking company that draws inspiration from the corporate world while maintaining traditional values as a family-owned business. The inaugural ERMA FIRST Group Agents Meeting, as a large-scale partner meeting that also showcases our Greek heritage and hospitality, is an embodiment of this blended approach. It is also an opportunity to celebrate our shared success, in which everyone attending has played a huge part, and to ensure that we are all working towards the same goals in the years to come.”
