Boat operators around the Mua-i-Walu Port do not have to look a far to get their marine products and industrial safety supplies.

Shiv Enterprises has now opened an outlet at the Marine Industrial Structural Engineering Limited (MISEL) building along Tofua Street in Walu Bay, Suva.

Business owner Ubesh Maharaj said he started the business in July 2004 because he wanted to help companies in the marine industry.

He said Shiv Enterprises supplies the best quality products from top industry brands to ensure efficient solutions catered to their clients’ needs.

The products range from marine paint, fiberglass, industrial gas, laminating resin, welding rods, cutting and grinding consumables, safety wear, cooking gas, and fishing gears.

“We are getting a very good response from our clients and its getting better day by day. We are available to our clients for 24 hours and we operate for seven days,” Mr Maharaj said. “Whenever a vessel arrives or leaves at night they would just call me up if they need their supplies. I would make sure to come and assist them.”

Valesasa Transportation Company manager Ilaitia Caginavanua said their vessel MV Uluinabukelevu gets all their supplies from the shop.

Mr Maharaj who is an accountant by profession has a wealth of experience in the marine and hydraulic market, which influenced him to start his own company. He had worked in two different companies for the last 15 years. He added that this was the only outlet he has so far and he would soon decide on expanding his business.
