Kostandian Bay Maritime Corporation (KBMC) is a large shipping and international trade consultancy firm based in Kostandian Bay. Despite branching out into other areas of international trade, the bulk of business done by the firm is the building of ships and the actual shipping.
KBMC was founded as Wiencek Shipping Company in 3580 by then Crown Prince, Robert Wiencek. The original purpose of the company was to be the main Zardic Navy contractor to provide ships and logistics support when Zardic Defense Industries shifted from a general military company to one more specialized for producing army and air force equipment.
In 3600 after the fall of the House of Wiencek from Royal power, the company went public and changed its name to Kostandian Bay Maritime Corporation. Subsquently the company began to diversify its business interests into maritime consulting, sea based security services, international business and trade consulting along with a small market for insurance (but this is limited to Zardic registered vessels).
In 4189, a deal between KMBC and Kazulian state-owned Defence company, Asvald Gruppen was made for the Kazulian corporation to acquire 49% of the company's shares, with the Government of the Federation of Zardugal holding the remaining 51%.
KBMC is broken up into a series of different subsidiary companies in the different nations it is active in.
