Founded in 2007, SKK Marine started as a small business servicing one client in Southern California. As our clients grew, so did our team of industry experts and partners all over the world. In 2010 SKK Marine incorporated as our parent company SFK Inc., servicing clients in many industries ranging from shipping, logistics, energy, and more.
As time went on, so did the demands of our clients, and in 2015 we set up SFK Security Consultants (SFK SecCon), a security, operations, and strategy consulting arm, servicing the dynamic needs of our clients. Ranging in themes from risk management, loss control, research, and sustainability, we are sure we can meet your needs as well.
While we may not be as prominent as our competitors, we differentiate ourselves by taking on every project with a personal touch; it is not uncommon for our managers and board members to take on several projects themselves. We are engaged in every step and are aware of the status of each operation in real-time.
Our team consists of a wide variety of experts ranging from process, chemical, and marine engineers, management consultants, master mariners, inspectors, data scientists, and insurance investigators. The breadth of experience and the degree of expertise we offer is insurmountable by nearly all those in our industry.
We have over 40 years of experience in the industries we service and strive to aim beyond the expectations of our customers and society to deliver industry-leading services wherever and whenever they are needed. With our global network and partnerships, we can service clients in many industries and locations all over the world.
Our team is made up of a diverse group of employees, industry experts, advisors, and collaborators. Each individual brings something truly unique to the table, and is the reason we continue to offer strategic and exceptional world class service to our clients. Learn more about them below.
