Abojeb Company, one of the leading maritime and manpower services companies, inaugurated its new office in Paranaque City.

The recently opened office occupies the 5th and 6th floor of Ri-Rance Corporate Center 1 at Aseana City. With 3,000 square meters, it houses Abojeb’s entire workforce and provides a modern welcome to the seafarers.

During the inauguration, Carl Martin Faannessen, Managing Director, Abojeb Company, said that this signifies the company’s continued commitment as a major player in the Philippines’ maritime industry. “As we move to our new home, we are excited to serve our customer and seafarers even better. Our company exists to deliver great people and services to meet the demands of our customers all over the world, and we now have the infrastructure to do this even better.”

Mr. Faannessen also mentioned that though Abojeb Group will remain focused on recruiting and developing Filipinos seafarers and providing quality and cost-efficient ship management globally, they are also looking at hiring land-based professionals because of the global demand for Filipino talent in the healthcare and education sector.

“More and more countries are opening their doors to Filipino healthcare professionals and teachers. And by taking advantage of this opportunity, we will be able to give more Filipinos a chance to a better life as we extend our services beyond maritime,” Faannessen shared.

According to Faannessen, many industries are still in need of skilled and competent Filipino workforce. The Philippines is a top-of-mind choice when it comes to sea-based and land-based talent. Hence, the Abojeb Group continues to see the people of the Philippines as the backbone of its business also in the future.
