About Us / History

Founding: Mr. Igor L. Fokeeff founded his business in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, servicing exclusively vessels of Eastern European origin. North Star's first client was the Murmansk Shipping Co., and still being serviced to this day, a history of mutual respect of almost a half a century. An immigrant to North America in his middle years Mr. Fokeeff started building something that would survive the generations. Under his steady hand, from it's meager beginnings, NSSC grew steadily and in 1976 officially incorporated under the Canadian Federal Corporations Act. This major step began the transformation of NSSC from a nationality specific independent into one of the leading ship suppliers in Montreal and Eastern Canada.
