Bridgemans Services Group LP is denying that the company has or has ever had ties to any individuals or commercial interests in this country.
It explained in a media release that the establishment did not have interactions of any sort with any individuals or commercial interests in the award of the service contract by the Ministry of Works and Transport.
The firm has been contracted by the government to provide vessels and crew for regularly-scheduled passenger and cargo service between Trinidad and Tobago.
It added that during the course of the company’s preparations to begin contracted service, one particular television outlet erroneously implied that the company’s owners included local shareholders, or commercial interests in Trinidad and Tobago.
The release underscored that Bridgemans’ corporate structure consists of privately held companies with the head office in Vancouver, Canada.
