Our Story

In 1990, after over 20 years of sea service under Polish and foreign flags, Captain Sławomir W. Pietrusiewicz established one of the first crewing agencies in Poland. The idea was to meet the highest standards of international shipping from one side and fulfill the expectations of seamen for trusted and friendly manning agent on the other side.

Since the very beginning of our manning activities Balteam has complied with Polish Government Regulations  and was listed in official Register. We have the honor to be a member of APMAR (Association of Polish Manning Agents and Shipowners Representatives) the organization that take active part to co-ordinate and consult all tasks between Maritime Offices, Government and Trade Unions.

In 2002, Balteam was licensed with BVQI  ISO 9001 : 2000 quality certificate.

Over the years Balteam Crewing Agency has developed unique atmosphere among the crew which existence is visible on every vessel covered by our Manning Agreement. Professional, highly educated and hardworking seafarers involved in all aspect of shipping have positive influence on other multinational crewmembers.

Today Balteam staff is ready for quick and professional action in response to any requirement the owners may think of.
