OUR HISTORY & FUTURE
High Seas Trading Co. was founded in Miami, Florida in 1986 during the early days of the big cruise ship expansion and the development of the Port of Miami and Port Everglades. Our initial idea was to become the best service provider to the South Florida marine industry while supplying all marine related products. The timing was, without a doubt, precise. We grew at a steady pace both in sales and in technical services and we became rapidly recognized for our reliability, dedication to our customers and the responsiveness of our knowledgeable team.
Over the years we continued expanding to provide comprehensive services and support not only in Florida but also worldwide, and in the process we gained a stellar reputation for delivering unmatched product inventory, superior technical knowledge and the most dependable solutions, including on-board safety trainings to small and large vessels at port, or at sea. In addition to expanding our facilities, growing our team, and strengthening our alliances for global support, we also developed strategic partnerships with the best safety and lifesaving equipment manufacturers in order to supply only the most trusted brands.
