Operating in 47 countries, through 31 operational affiliates located close to the areas of operation, and in countries with a strong maritime culture, BOURBON manages a policy of decentralized recruiting.

The strong growth of the group has led BOURBON to recruit massively: between 2010 and 2015, nearly 5,000 new employees joined us.
