Set up back in 2007 by Zafar Azimov, the company started by investing in two fishing companies Arktikservis and Tunaycha.
Zamwell entered the project in mid-2007 when Tunaycha, once Russia’s leading Pacific salmon products manufacturer, found itself on the brink of bankruptcy. Over a short period of time Zamwell made a crisis management roadmap, re-negotiated the debt with the creditor and supported the company in emerging from the debt crisis. In 2009 Zamwell exited from Tynaycha project and focused on the development of a Murmansk crab-fishing company Arktikservis, a former part of Tunaycha structure.
During its 4-year cooperation with Zamwell Arktikservis secured favorable funding terms and fully repaid its debt, repaired its entire crab fishing fleet, paid its salary debts and improved its export structure. In late 2011 a strategic investor approached Zamwell with an offer to purchase Arktikservis. Last year Murmansk crab fishing company was rated one of Russia’s 50 fastest-growing companies.
