The beginning

Nola Night City View

Melco Group International, Inc. and OASIS the 'Ocean Air Shipping Information System' was conceived by Erwin B. Melzer in the early 80's. Mr. Melzer was born in Cuba of Swiss German parents and is fluent in Spanish, German and English.

He has traveled extensively having resided in Cuba, Puerto Rico, Switzerland, France and the United States and through business commitments traveled throughout Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
