In 1988, Rayomar Management Inc. and Transmar Agencies, Inc., collaborated with "K" Line, to put up a manning company for the purpose of recruiting suitable Filipino seamen to man "K" Line Ships.
This collaboration bore fruit on April 12, 1989 when this manning company, now officially known as Ventis Maritime Corporation, formally opened at Suite 2098, V.V Soliven Bldg., EDSA, Greenhills, San Juan, Metro Manila.
Ventis was conferred an ISO certification on September 28, 1999; after months of preparation for a Quality Management System that will ensure Principals' satisfaction. That it would work towards a continued and greater satisfaction of the Principals was proven on October 19, 2000 when it passed its first surveillance audit without a single nonconformity.
Ventis received another award from POEA on January 31, 2006, the "Top Performer Award", making it three times now that Ventis has been honored with this citation by POEA.
The number of vessels assigned to Ventis then started to increase back in 2007. By 2011, it is planned that the total number will double the total number of vessels manned in 2007. This will mean hiring more seafarers and ensuring that their capability and skills meet the requirements of "K" Line.
On April 17, 2007, a new President of Ventis was enthusiastically chosen by the Board of Directors in a meeting that was held in Tokyo. Jose Ramon R. Garcia, an entrepreneurial visionary was chosen to lead Ventis to far greater heights.
Nine months after, on January 26, 2008, Ventis moved to her third business address. This new address is at the ground floor of the imposing "K" Line Building, a seven-story modern edifice that sits along Coral Way Drive in the bustling Central Business Park 1 of Pasay City, along Diosdado Macapagal Avenue.
This move to the new address bodes will for Ventis, for it reflects the vision of both the Management and Staff towards becoming the number one manning agent in the Philippines.
Today, with 42 employees, two Principals listed under POEA, 60 manned vessels and over a thousand seamen in its roster, Ventis continues to face the challenge of the future.
