Our History & Timeline


Carl F. Ewig immigrated from Germany to the United States in 1950 and in 1957 incorporated Carl F. Ewig Inc. Claims service to the marine insurance industry was one of the lines of business.


Ewig International Marine Corporation was established as its own brand for the insurance services business. The main client base was the German marine insurance market and grew from there to encompass other European and US domestic insurers.


Rudiger Stoer and Hans Ruhlandt, both senior managers in the business, acquired Ewig International from the Ewig family. Rudi had been working for the Ewig family since 1965; and Hans since 1981. Under the new leadership, Ewig expanded its activities in cargo risk management and particularly project cargo risk management. The client base, which traditionally consisted mainly of global marine insurers and brokers, expanded to include other stakeholders in the global supply chain, including large industrial manufacturers and traders. The insurance client base also expanded geographically.


Rudiger Stoer retired and his interest was purchased by a small group of EIMC management.


Ewig International Marine Corporation officially changed its name to EIMC LLC. Hans Ruhlandt retired.
