On December 31, 2019, at the New Year meeting in Sopot, three long-time and very important SMT Shipping employees retired. Senior Superintendents Andrzej Bednarski and Sylwester Tyraj, who had 27 and 29 years with SMT, respectively, along with Fleet Manager Adam Bodal, who had been with the company for 20 years, were celebrated for their dedication and the great impact they had on SMT. All three were given inscribed gifts to thank them and remind them of their time with SMT. We hope that we can count on Andrzej, Sylwester and Adam to continue their great support of our younger colleagues and wish each of them good health and much relaxation after so many years of hard work and loyalty.
