Dispatches No. 379

News from the member – CESG Limited will become Voyonic Crewing Limited.

On the 15th February 2007 a new company was incorporated in Guernsey the purpose of which was to deliver high quality employment solutions to the marine and other industry sectors. The company signed up their first client in April of that year rapidly followed by others – we still provide services to those early clients whom we have over the years developed close working and personal relationships with.

The stated aim of the company was the delivery of robust efficient employment solutions which were fully compliant with all appropriate tax and social security legislation and the operations were operated in accordance with the standards laid down in ISO9001.

Throughout the decade that followed the business continued to grow and continuously improve and because of its operating ethics continues to attract those discerning clients who are looking for a high quality robust service to support their own clients.

The company values its discretion and this is maintained by simply treating every client as the “only client”, confidentiality has been our watchword since day one – long before GDPR.

In 2015 there was a change of ownership of the business which also necessitated a change of name. For various reasons this change was carried out in a relatively short space of time and consequently the name given to the company was for practical rather than aesthetic reasons.

As we now reach the company’s 11th anniversary, the decision has been taken to address the name issue and so allow the company to develop strategically with a name chosen to show the company ambition and vision for the future.

Our new branding will be as VOYONIC and therefore with effect from the 21st of February CESG Limited will become Voyonic Crewing Limited.

The new brand name is designed to show our commitment to support our clients on their journey with the vibrancy that permeates throughout our organisation.

The logo that we have adopted is designed to show our commitment to the marine industry in particular and its shape is based upon a specific vessel hull form. The sharp eyed amongst you may notice that the globe built into the design contains a single red dot which signifies our head office in Guernsey.

We will be rolling out our new branding over the coming weeks and would certainly value any feedback that you might have on our new look.
