Union Commercial is managed by the two sons of the Group's founder, Michael and Pantelis "Pete" Scufalos, who joined the company in 1986 and 1982 respectively. Michael Scufalos serves as Managing Director and Pete Scufalos as Head of Commercial Operations.

Since 1978 the Company has focused exclusively on the management of dry cargo vessels, principally in the handysize, handymax and supramax sectors, selling off Container and Cargo Services, and since 1999, benefiting from the combination of improved communications and the availability of a more skilled workforce in Greece, has redeployed all commercial management activities to Greece.

The Company received its ISM Document of Compliance by Bureau Veritas in November of 1997. Union Commercial presently employs twentyfour shore-based staff and at any one time approximately two hundred oceangoing seamen. Reflecting the Company's emphasis on quality operations the on-shore Technical Department consists of two full-time Port Captains, three Superintendent Engineers and a consultant Naval Architect.
