To provide our customers with superior chemical tanker service – creative, proactive and always client focused.  To maintain the highest standards for safety and efficiency in the operation of our fleet.  To conduct all our activities in a professional, ethical and socially responsible manner.


Our team and partners make the difference

Dedicated professionals staff our offices in The Netherlands, South Africa, Singapore, Japan and U.S.A, sail on our vessels, and attend to operations at ports around the world.  In 2003, the Company established a partnership with Iino Kaiun Kaisha Ltd. which has increased the size of Fairfield’s controlled fleet and provides valuable customer facing synergies resulting from shared core values and the commitment to excellence.   In 2015 Fairfield Japan Ltd. was merged into the group respecting the key role it plays in providing the highest quality tonnage to Fairfield Chemical Carriers’ fleet.


A vision from the start

Fairfield Chemical Carriers was established in 1996 through a coming together of partners with a shared vision and a track record of success in chemical tanker ship owning and trading.  The founding management team’s leadership, supported by Fairfield Maxwell Ltd.’s financial stability, resources, and strong connections in the Japan shipping community, set the course.  The group’s core ambition remains firmly in place today and is reflected in our commitment to constantly improving.  Simply put, we want to be the very best chemical tanker company we can be – one our customers can rely upon, trust, appreciate, and enjoy doing business with – wherever we offer our services.   The group is private and closely held by shareholders with experience in shipping dating back to the 1950’s.  Management is empowered to plan and act for the long term ensuring stability and consistency to our customers.
