254 and Counting
27 October 2014
To Lloyd’s Register in the City to film their Chief Executive Richard Sadler for the Maritime Media Awards. Lloyd’s are THE big guns in marine certification – setting standards for ships, vital for safe cargoes and safe deliveries of all the goods we need – but they also set many other standards worldwide, shedloads of other big stuff. In fact their marine business is now just over a third of what they do, which means their other business is booming. Richard is excited about the new Global Technology Centre they’ve set up with Southampton University, to get ahead of the curve in all new marine innovation. Lloyd’s (L.R.as they call themselves) are now 254 years old but still setting a worldwide standard – the phrase ‘A1 at Lloyd’s’ must be the only marine certification term to enter the English language!
