Whereas the company was is the Thai maritime business for a long time, The Executives acknowledged that the majority of Thai Seafarers still lacked of skill and knowledge especially in safety aspects and they were consequently discriminated as the sub-quality standard person when compared to seafarers from other countries. This caused them to be unable to compete in the international labor markets.

As the aforesaid reason, The Executives had the inspiration to participate in improving the ability of the Thai Seafarers up to the International Standards, in order to, firstly, be acceptable to foreign countries, secondly, competitive in foreign labor markets, and lastly, help increase the reputation to our country. They consensus founded the Siam Maritime School (SMS) in order to provide various international training and education for seafarers and interested persons who desire to increase or upgrade their knowledge and experiences in the maritime fields.
