While on Grand Bahama last week the Minister of Labour and Training Dion Foulkes met with representatives of shipping services firms Fowlco Ltd and Blue Parrot, which recently joined forces in the field of shipping, logistic and ship repair related services.

Both companies are making “an impressive mark in the marine industry.”

Minister Foulkes commended Fowlco founder and CEO Curtis Fowler and managing director Glennett Fowler for their confidence to invest heavily in the Grand Bahama economy at this time.


“It is encouraging and most exciting to see young and talented Bahamians venture into such a dynamic industry and they have brought the notable international expertise and experience of Blue Parrot under the Fowlco Ltd corporate umbrella,” said Minister Foulkes.

The Labour Minister added that “the government is pleased that Fowlco and Blue Parrot are committed to a major technical training programme to ensure more Bahamians become qualified to take advantage of the tremendous maritime career opportunities.”

Blue Parrot’s technical advisor Alberto Gonzalez said: “We enjoy a great business relationship with Fowlco, we remain committed to going above and beyond to exceed the expectations of clients while positively impacting the Grand Bahama and wider Bahamas economy.”

A group of some 60 licensed skydivers and aviation enthusiasts are at the Old Bahama Bay on Grand Bahama Island this week for its first Bahama Beach Skydiving event.
