U.S. Navy Ships:

USS John F Kennedy visited Malta in October 1999

The professionalism you extended in both an official and social capacity was remarkable. You are without a doubt the "Very Best" Husbanding Agents I have experienced in my 20 years of Naval Service. Please enjoy this photograph in rememberance of our visit to Malta and in appreciation for your herculeon efforts to ensure a most successful port visit for myself and the entire crew of the USS John F. Kennedy. Sincerely CDR Scott Bethmann Supply Officer.


USS WASP April 1998

Husbanding Agents support was outstanding! Philip and Nicholas Grech of Kirton & Co Ltd, were on top of all problems, and happily resolved all issues efficiently and effectively, regardless of the time of day. Their assistance with WASP's needs is greatly appreciated. Philip and Nicholas set the standard for service! 


USS AUSTIN November 1998
Husbanding services in Malta were perhaps the best of all Austin's port visits. The husbanding agents, Philip and Nicholas Grech, responded thoroughly to the logreq, immediately informed the ship of changes and provided outstanding recommendations. 


USS RAMAGE July 1999

Husbanding agent provided outstanding service. There was at least one representative available 24 hours a day. Husbanding agent was very accommodating and responded quickly to last minute, urgent requirements. 


USS LEYTE GULF September 1999
The Husbanding Agents, Mr Nicholas Grech and Philip Grech, were absolutely superb. They arranged for the delivery of fresh provisions and numerous critical supplies, and were instrumental in ensuring our port visit was a success. Leyte Gulf looks forward to working with them in the future.

The husbanding agents were very knowledgeable and friendly. They did an outstanding job providing all requirements on time and with outstanding quality. 


Husbanding Agents are among the best we have ever had the pleasure to work with, true professionals.


USS CARNEY November 1999
Mr Nicholas Grech and Mr Philip Grech with MLS Ltd, served as Carney's husbanding agents while inport Mlata. Undoubtedly, these gentlemen were the best husbanding agents Carney has encountered since inchoping into Sixth Fleet. Their resourcefulness in assuring all needs were met was truly unparalleled despite an extremely busy inport period for the ship.

Kirton and Company were totally professional, they know their business. I rank them among the top husbanding agents in Europe.
