Last century, two families joined forces and decided to dedicate themselves full time to the maritime business. The fourth generation of those two families are currently running the Shipping Agency Antón Martin Shipping in Ferrol, Spain. In 2017, the company broke family-owned company stereotypes by celebrating its 125th anniversary in good health. In 1982, Guillermo Ventura Martín and Emilio Antón Yboleón founded Antón Martin y Cia with the goal of providing all types of services to ships docking in Ferrol’s shipyards. We opened our doors in the Ferrol Vello neighborhood, at San Francisco street, directly behind the facade of the city’s port.
