C-Job Naval Architects will expand its business to the United States by opening a dedicated branch office in Houston, Texas this summer.
Basjan Faber, CEO at C-Job, the largest independent ship design and engineering company in the Netherlands, 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 ship owners 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.”
The move follows increased activity in the US by the Dutch naval architecture firm such as attending the International Work Boat Show in New Orleans in 2018 as well as the recent Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) in Houston. 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 adds “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 realize our American Dream.”
C-Job is renowned for its innovative ship design and engineering and 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.
