CMC MARINE EXPANDS ITS PRESENCE IN CHINA AND TAIWAN AND ANNOUNCES A MAJOR AGREEMENT WITH CHINESE SHIPYARD HEYSEA
The company led by Alessandro Cappiello has organised a roadshow in Taiwan to present its products to the Asian market, where they will be distributed by Ninety Nine, a solid company with several decades of experience working in the area. The company based in Tuscany, Italy, has also signed a major contract to supply Stabilis Electra to HeySea, China’s leading shipyard.
CMC Marine, which has for years been exploring and reporting success in strategic new geographical areas, recently completed a roadshow in Taiwan, where demand for custom solutions and leading edge technology is rising significantly.
In response to this demand, on August 7 and 8 the Pisa-based company organised a series of events and meetings in the magnificent setting of the highly renowned Kanshin’s Pier 22 Marina, with over 30 managers from the main shipyards in the area (including Ocean Alexander, Horizon, Asia Harbour, Kashing and Johnson Yachts), during which CMC Marine presented its latest generation products. Industry representatives from Asia made their own contribution by explaining in detail the main needs of the various sectors, inviting CMC Marine personnel to visit shipyards based in the area to discuss specific technical needs and their customers.
CMC Marine’s main partner in the region will be Ninety Nine (http://www.jiufang99.com/), a company with over 40 years’ experience working in the marine and yachting sector, which will handle distribution on both its home market in Taiwan and on continental China.
In parallel with the roadshow, CMC Marine also signed a major contract with China’s leading boat builder HeySea to supply Stabilis Electra HS120 for their new 142’ flaship, planned for delivery next year.
CMC Marine CEO Alessandro Cappiello commented: “We are extremely proud to have signed an agreement with China’s leading yacht builder and hope it marks the start of a long term partnership, as has been the case with all our main European customers. It also represents an important step forward in the ‘conquest’ of Asia, where we will soon be in a position to provide adequate technical support on a par with other areas.”
The goal of the Pisa-based company is to offer the same level of quality, in terms of both production and assistance, in all the geographical areas into which it expands.
