Marine Marketing International Ltd was first established in 1985 as the London marketing office for the Zenta Engineering Holdings Ltd Group of Companies.
In 1988 Capt. Derek Hammond merged his Hammond Marine Agencies Shiprepair yard agency with MMI which significantly expanded the company size. This also brought representation of diving and underwater service contractors into MMI’s portfolio.
In 1995 Nigel Smith, then the Marketing Manager, effected a management buyout from Zenta and commenced business on 1st April 1995 as a privately owned company.
In August 1995 a fully staffed office opened in Cyprus to serve the growing shipping community there.
In May 2000 a Marketing Representative was appointed in the Isle of Man.
Towards the end of 2003 the Underwater Services division was sold and with the handing over of the Cyprus division to a local company MMI could offer a more focused service to its UK & Ireland based customers.
In the middle of 2004 Mike McMahon, an established name in the Marine Services Industry took control of the company and relocated its offices to Milton Keynes, just 35 minutes from the centre of London by train and within an hours’ drive of 4 international airports.
In 2009 with Capt. Latcho Stoyanov joining the team, MMI expanded it's territory of operation to include France, Monaco, Switzerland and Italy and have seen the creation of MMI Europe to be based in the Monaco area.
In 2011 MMI Europe Ltd. has been established to serve the European customers under the management of Capt. Latcho, who is an ex-technical manager with 9 years of management experience in London and Farnham, UK. Capt. Latcho has been managing fleets of up to 23 vessels and brought an extensive expertise of docking and shiprepair to the new venture.
In the next several years MMI Europe worked to expand the company’s portfolio with the representation of shipyard, workshops and marine suppliers all around the world.
In 2015 MMI Europe expanded to the territories of Belgium, Croatia, Montenegro, Bulgaria and Romania, while in 2016 we started developing Spain and Portugal markets.
In January 2017 MMI Europe started the penetration of the Dutch market.
