• In year 1990, they decided to set-up its own office in the Philippines which was ever since the main source for seamen. Lydiamar was then serviced by Philimare Shipping & Equipment Supply.
• LM (Manila) who had several years of steadfast relationship to its principals and with reputable stand in the manning industry was chosen to be their affiliate.
• August Bolten, which is owned by Aug. Bolten Wm. Miller’s Nachfolger (GmbH & Co.) KG, in Hamburg, Germany has its affiliates and one of them is Lydia Mar Shipping CO. S.A., a ship management company in Athens, Greece
• The company commenced its operation in Manila in 1990 as a single proprietorship. Its scope of activities was to render professional crew supply services according to German principal standards and subsequently to the international shipping community.
• In July 1995, after having been firmly established in the industry as professional crew supplier, the company elevated its status from single proprietorship to a corporation.
