Company History

With the help of some of the most important milestones, you can follow Destel Group's growth towards the international group it has become today.

1991 

After a - more than a decade - highly commendable carrier serving Maritime Houses and their vessels as an officer, first officer and Captain, the decision to create and develop a reliable and ahead of its time, spare parts supply company was made, thus setting the cornerstone for the future of the Group, and for Destel to become one of the leading Suppliers in Greece. Destel Marine was founded by Captain Panagiotis Degreas and started operating as a spare parts supplier in the centre of Piraeus, with the word family engraved to its core values.

1994

Those three years played a vital role in developing key partnerships and creating trading arms extending the company's operations from Europe to across the world. Understanding the future and the need for holistic marine services Destel Marine was engaged in trading bunkers & lubricants worldwide.

1996 

Using the past five years as a market measurement and clients’ analysis it was more transparent than ever that offering holistic in-house services was the future of Shipping. This observation resulted in the foundation of Destel Group SMPC providing cabin and deck stores and provisions supply, whereas acting alongside Destel Marine covers every need of a vessel in every Greek port. Utilizing worldwide connections by the dawn of the new millennia Destel manages to be one of the few companies to be able to supply vessels in every port in China through our affiliated company based on Qingdao port, as well in several key ports worldwide (i.e. Singapore, U.A.E., and more).

2007 

The passion for development leads to the establishment of Destel Shipping Agencies LTD increasing our area of services but always under the Destel reliability. Immediately and due to the already established connections in Greek ports Destel Agencies manages to cover all procedures for safe passage, cargo handling (wet & dry) and providing full services and crew changes for every type of vessel – not only - across every port in Greece, but in Singapore and China through our representative offices.

2014 

Whilst using Destel Marine as a trader of bunkers & lubricants so far, the dream for further development in the field was finally materialized in Dubai with the establishment of Destel Energy DMCC, wherewith an already extensive clientele would be a hub for further expansion and development, by trading marine bunkers, lubricants & refined oil products. The already established experience as a business developer and bunkers’ supplier/trader gives the ability to provide efficient quality services, along with competitive prices to its customers in full compliance with the latest international rules and regulations.
