WHO WE ARE
The Grimaldi family’s relationship with the sea date back to 1348, when the de Grimaldis’ brothers were given a precious relic in solid gold by Queen Giovanna I, as a guarantee to charter three of their ships. In 1947 Guido and his brothers Grimaldi set up their own business by purchasing a Liberty vessel, which gave birth to the most important privately owned European fleets. In the following years, as passengers’ demands for comfort and quality increased, the fleet was upgraded to include new, modern liners.
The expansion in the Ro/ro sector in the transport of vehicles came in 1969, when the Group started operating regular liner services linking Italy to United Kingdom and rapidly won the trust of the major vehicle manufacturers, who needed to ship their vehicles between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean.
Over the last forty years the focus on the Ro/ro sector has in fact been the driving factor for growth; it expanded its service terminals to serve trade not only in the Mediterranean and in the Northern Europe trades, but also in Africa, in Southern America and in Northern America.
Today Grimaldi Compagnia di Navigazione SpA has its registered office in Palermo.
There, in addition to the registered office, the Grimaldi’s Group is linked to the Brucato’s Family, an historic port company, by the property of Palermo Euro Terminal srl, its business in the port of Palermo.
