This is the company within our Group (listed at the Italian Stock Exchange: DIS), which operates on an international scale in the sector of maritime transport and is market leader in the tanker sector.
By means of the subsidiary, d'Amico Tankers Limited, founded in Ireland in 2001, we operate a fleet of double-hulled vessels, which are used mainly to transport refined petroleum products. We provide sea transport on a worldwide scale to the major petroleum and trading companies.
However, the origins of this business date back to 1936, when the d’Amico family began operating in the shipping sector in Salerno.
In 1952, d'Amico Società di Navigazione SpA, the current holding of our Group, was founded in Rome and in the same year we acquired our first tanker vessel.
During the 60s, our Group increased the number of tankers, and in the decades which followed, it continued to develop the business and has now consolidated a leading position in the sector.
The first Medium Range tanker vessels, which today mark our DIS quotation, were ordered in 1987. From the end of the 90s, we began a plan to significantly expand our tanker fleet.
