C-Job Naval Architects will expand its business to the United States by opening a dedicated branch office in Houston, Texas this summer.
The move follows increased activity in the US by the Dutch naval architecture firm. To further deepen its ties to the US, C-Job entered into a strategic partnership with Seattle-based naval architecture firm Glosten which was announced in November of last year.
Basjan Faber, CEO at C-Job, said: “At C-Job we believe clients should be closely involved in the entire ship design process as it benefits the design which is why we work in close cooperation with shipowners and shipyards.
“Opening an office in Houston, Texas allows us to be in close proximity to our American clients and provide even more support to our already on-going American projects.”
He continued: “C-Job has seen an exponential growth over the past few years with exciting projects, doubling our staff and opening our first international office in Nikolayev, Ukraine. This is when we first shared our ambitions to pursue US markets and it’s a sign of our dedication and commitment that we can now take this next step – opening a C-Job office in Houston, Texas to further realise our American Dream.”
C-Job has a strong track-record in several industries including Dredging, Offshore (Wind), Ferries, Yachts and Workboats. The company also has a dedicated Research and Development department which focuses on new ways to improve and be innovative with both its designs as well as in the creation of these designs.
