• About Meyer Group

    The Meyer story is a success story of the development of a shipping and coal bunkering agency into a widely diversified business group that oversees shipping, freight, travel, tours, IT service work and property development.

    From humble beginnings, it started with a vision from Captain Wm. E. Meyer, who in 1876, created Wm. E. Meyer & Co. Limited, a shipping and coal-bunkering agency based in the historic Town of St. George, Bermuda.

    The company also owned and operated work boats, water barges, coal barges and tug boats, which allowed them to offer a comprehensive list of services to the all-important shipping industry serving Bermuda.

    Almost a century later in 1951, the company commenced operation of a machine shop specialising in ship repairs and related services. This business segment was expanded and later leased out to a private operator.

    When it comes to the history of Meyer Travel Agency, it all started in 1907 after chartering the Prince George. A 19-knot vessel, the Prince George was dubbed the "finest ship in Bermuda waters" at the time, sky rocketing this newly formed company to notoriety. The vessel ran between Bermuda and New York, carrying the mail and 100 passengers who paid $40 for a round trip ticket.

    In 1946, Meyer's agency operations expanded to Hamilton with the opening of its Reid Street office, offering port agent services to incoming vessels and travel agent services to the Bermuda public. Meyer became one of the first members appointed to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), Pan American World Airways and British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC).

    In 1972, the parent company amalgamated Meyer's ship, freight and travel agency operations to form Meyer Agencies Ltd. As the agency operations became more specialized over the next decades, they became known by the division names of Meyer Shipping, Meyer Freight and Meyer Travel.

    In 1986, Meyer Agencies Ltd moved into the newly purchased Waverley property on 35 Church Street. The location offered convenience and a central point to service customers.

    Today Meyer Shipping operates from St. George's, Hamilton and Dockyard with its offices servicing Bermuda's regular and occasional callers. Meyer Freight represents two of the three dedicated freight lines serving Bermuda: Bermuda International Shipping Ltd. out of Salem, New Jersey, and Somers Isles Shipping Ltd. out of Port Fernandina, Florida.

    In 2002, the Meyer Group joined with our IT manager to form Meyer Technologies. Today, Meyer Technologies or MyTec, as it is known as, is the fastest growing company within the Meyer Group, led by vice-president of information systems, Gary Levon.

    This same year, 2002, that Meyer Travel and Franklin Travel merged to form the separate company Meyer-Franklin Travel, with a team of 30 including leisure and corporate travel teams, shore excursions and accounting, and partnered with over 40 preferred airline, cruise, tour and hotel vendors across the globe.

    The Meyer Group of Companies continues to expand, but is always governed by its founding principles of honesty, integrity and a hands on approach to every job that is undertaken.

    The Meyer story is a success story of the development of a shipping and coal bunkering agency into a widely diversified business group that oversees shipping, freight, travel, tours, IT service work and property development.

    From humble beginnings, it started with a vision from Captain Wm. E. Meyer, who in 1876, created Wm. E. Meyer & Co. Limited, a shipping and coal-bunkering agency based in the historic Town of St. George, Bermuda.

    The company also owned and operated work boats, water barges, coal barges and tug boats, which allowed them to offer a comprehensive list of services to the all-important shipping industry serving Bermuda.

    Almost a century later in 1951, the company commenced operation of a machine shop specialising in ship repairs and related services. This business segment was expanded and later leased out to a private operator.

    When it comes to the history of Meyer Travel Agency, it all started in 1907 after chartering the Prince George. A 19-knot vessel, the Prince George was dubbed the "finest ship in Bermuda waters" at the time, sky rocketing this newly formed company to notoriety. The vessel ran between Bermuda and New York, carrying the mail and 100 passengers who paid $40 for a round trip ticket.

    In 1946, Meyer's agency operations expanded to Hamilton with the opening of its Reid Street office, offering port agent services to incoming vessels and travel agent services to the Bermuda public. Meyer became one of the first members appointed to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), Pan American World Airways and British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC).

    In 1972, the parent company amalgamated Meyer's ship, freight and travel agency operations to form Meyer Agencies Ltd. As the agency operations became more specialized over the next decades, they became known by the division names of Meyer Shipping, Meyer Freight and Meyer Travel.

    In 1986, Meyer Agencies Ltd moved into the newly purchased Waverley property on 35 Church Street. The location offered convenience and a central point to service customers.

    Today Meyer Shipping operates from St. George's, Hamilton and Dockyard with its offices servicing Bermuda's regular and occasional callers. Meyer Freight represents two of the three dedicated freight lines serving Bermuda: Bermuda International Shipping Ltd. out of Salem, New Jersey, and Somers Isles Shipping Ltd. out of Port Fernandina, Florida.

    In 2002, the Meyer Group joined with our IT manager to form Meyer Technologies. Today, Meyer Technologies or MyTec, as it is known as, is the fastest growing company within the Meyer Group, led by vice-president of information systems, Gary Levon.

    This same year, 2002, that Meyer Travel and Franklin Travel merged to form the separate company Meyer-Franklin Travel, with a team of 30 including leisure and corporate travel teams, shore excursions and accounting, and partnered with over 40 preferred airline, cruise, tour and hotel vendors across the globe.

    The Meyer Group of Companies continues to expand, but is always governed by its founding principles of honesty, integrity and a hands on approach to every job that is undertaken.
