Our Goal:


We at Keystone view our business as a partnership with each and every one of our customers and service providers. We greatly value the opportunity to contribute to their success.


Keystone has two imperatives:

  1. To deliver superior operating performance and ship management at all times.
  2. To perform all services safely, with the utmost environmental care, and with efficiency and cost effectiveness.

    Our Goal has remained consistent since our first day in business over 100 years ago. We consider our charterers to be our partners. As such, we not only integrate their expectations into our own, but strive to exceed their expectations in the services we provide.


    Our service is a reflection of our work culture and safety practices ashore and on the water. Keystone’s leadership in the maritime industry has become well-recognized, and many of the innovations that we developed have become industry adopted practices. We believe that sharing best practices raises industry standards, and enhances the value that we deliver. It also helps to preserve the environment and our national heritage.


    Keystone strives to exceed customer expectations and regulatory requirements. Our success is directly attributable to our loyal dedicated and highly experienced staff – both ashore and afloat. All hands are committed to the highest standards of safety, security, efficiency, quality and environmental preservation.
