Jose Lorente Carrillo and son Jose Lorente Esposito continued in the business for many years.
The third generation, Jose Lorente Gonzalez and Carlos Lorente Gonzalez continued the business by the end of the 60’s and opened more than 10 branches at main Spanish ports.
In this period internet was not available however they managed to trade the Company with major International Shipping Companies visiting Companies abroad and attending to maritime exhibitions.
Jose and Carlos developed the business by opening branches all over Spain and supplying offshore in North Africa.
During the petrol crisis of 1973 the Company had to downsize and closed most of the branches keeping Valencia and Castellon offices and continued in the business.
In 1979 Same Ship Suppliers lead the project to create AESMAR, The Spanish Ship Supply Association.
Few years later in 1999 Carlos Lorente Gonzalez left the Company leaving Jose Lorente Gonzalez as sole owner of the Company.
In 2002 Daniel Lorente Di Stefano, son of Jose Lorente Gonzalez, joined the Company after finishing his studies in Business Administration at Saint Louis University-USA and The International MBA at IE-Madrid.
Previously he worked for Nestle and Fedex where he had the opportunity to learn sales organization and logistics.
His first task in the Company was to develop a Technical Department in order to fulfill the need of many owners and purchasers willing to purchase in Spain.
Very soon many Companies began using our services on regular basis and the Technical Department started to grow. In 2018 sales for technical stores represented 38% of the total turnover of the Co.
