Furness Withy Offers Folder On Group's Structure And Services

Furness Withy, the British group of companies based and managed in the United Kingdom, is offering a free color folder that describes the group's structure and services and gives a glimpse into its wide-ranging interests.

Since 1980, these companies have been part of the Tung Group of Hong Kong. Furness Withy & Co. is the holding company, and there are four principal operating subsidiaries, representing the four main business sectors in which group companies are engaged: (1) Furness Withy (Shipping); (2) Houlder Offshore; (3) Furness Withy (Terminals); and (4) Furness-Houlder (Insurance).

The activities of each of the four business sectors are outlined in the folder, along with attractive illustrations of vessels, drilling rigs, container terminals, buildings, etc., associated with the group. Serving to point up the varied participation of the companies is an underwater photo of one of the several hundred divers employed in North Sea operations by Comex Houlder Diving Ltd., a leading British diving contractor in which Houlder Offshore has a 50 percent interest.
