About LGSA Marine

LGSA Marine is an independent company of marine surveyors, cargo surveyors, engineers and consultants providing a comprehensive range of services to the insurance, maritime, shipping, risk management, transport & energy industries.

Our origins date back to 1857 with the establishing of The Liverpool and Glasgow Salvage Association by a committee of shipowners, merchants and Underwriters.

In 2000 The Liverpool & Glasgow Salvage Association merged with Perfect, Lambert & Co. to become LGSA Marine.

LGSA Marine is the trading name for The Liverpool and Glasgow Association For the Protection of Commercial Interests As Respects Wrecked & Damaged Property Limited. The original corporate structure has been maintained and LGSA Marine now operates as a not-for-profit limited company incorporated by guarantee and managed by a Committee drawn from the shipping and insurance industries.

With no shareholders or partners to consider, operating surpluses are reinvested back into the business to continually improve the service LGSA Marine gives to its customers.

LGSA Marine operates a quality management system to BS EN ISO 9001:2008 which is independently audited by Lloyd’s Register.
