Until 1995, there had been no organisation offering an organised, hands-on, response to piracy able to intervene rapidly to counter and respond to pirate attacks. As a result, pirates were, literally, getting away with murder.
Prevention offers the best and most cost-effective means of combatting the piracy risk (and that includes S E Asia), and this is being realised by an increasing number of Shipowners. Unfortunately, it has also been recognised by an increasing number of untrained, discredited quasi-military personnel possessing no knowledge, experience or training in maritime operations, who now offer themselves as "Maritime Security" resources. Utilising these organisations is a dangerous precedent that could increase risk rather than eliminate it.
MRM launched the world's first Anti-Piracy Rapid Response Force in 1996. MRM unique experience in this area is unequalled. We employ only Maritime Special Forces personnel who possess years of maritime counter-terrorism experience, resulting in MRM becoming the leader in combatting Piracy & Hijack threats and incidents.
MRM is proud to be one of the founder members of the International Association of Maritime Security Professionals.
