Incorporated in Palermo, Sicily, Industria Armamento Meridionale (Inarme) was established as a shipping company a few decades ago, with the aim of supporting the Italian Government's strategy to create the conditions for the development of maritime links between the Southern Italian Regions and the major worldwide markets.
Inarme is owned by Grimaldi Compagnia di Navigazione and Atlantica di Navigazione; its Chairman is Gianluca Grimaldi and the Managing Directors are Emanuele Grimaldi and Diego Pacella, the latter also being the Group's Finance Director.
Over the years, the company has developed its fully owned fleet, focusing on Ro/Ro-Multipurpose Car Carriers characterised by their large size and maximum flexibility in relation to cargo mix and intake. Such flexibility is one of the main reasons behind the operational and financial achievements of the business.
Primarily acting as a ship provider for the trades managed by Grimaldi Compagnia di Navigazione and Atlantica di Navigazione, the Inarme fleet is mainly deployed on the Group's Atlantic Network while also serving the Euro-Med Network.
