“Overseas Agency Ltd” was founded in 1969 and soon established a place among the leading shipbroking firms in Piraeus, a position it has retained ever since. Up until the late 1970’s “Overseas Agency Ltd” traded as a multi-activity shipbroking firm maintaining departments specialising in the chartering of ships to lift dry and liquid cargoes, the Sale & Purchase of ships, the arranging of ship finance and the undertaking of ship management. Oil trading was another activity.

From 1978 to 1997 the Company's activities became more concentrated on broking the Sale & Purchase of ships and the provision of ship finance services in support of this activity.

In 1997, “Overseas Agency Ltd” entered into an agreement with Ukraine's Ministry of Industrial Policy to promote the Ukrainian shipbuilding industry and all related branches of the sector, to Greek Shipping worldwide. This, of course, resulted in important changes to the Company's activity profile. The Ukrainian agreement was reached in co-operation with Bureau Veritas, which assisted in the technical aspects of the project through its extensive presence in the East Europe region.

Furthermore, in January of 1999, “Overseas Agency Ltd.” was elected an Associate Member of the Ukrainian Shipbuilders' Association (UKRSUDPROM) with the deliberative voice. Additionally, as of April 1999, the Company hosts in its premises the Piraeus’ based Honorary Consulate of Ukraine.

In 2000 “Overseas Agency Ltd” was appointed as an official valuator for the Athens’ Stock Exchange (ASE).

In 2003 the founder of “Overseas Agency Ltd”, the late Takis G. Makris, was succeeded by his son, Mr. George P. Makris who serves as President of the Board and Managing Director of the Company.

In 2005, in order to improve its services to its Clients, the Company’s activities were expanded to include, once more, dry cargo chartering.

In 2008, a further expansion step was taken into the Insurance field through the establishment of "Overseas Insurance Consultants" which was formed by highly regarded professionals with many years of experience in all classes of Insurance.
