C-Job Naval Architects is opening a new office in Athens, Greece. The global independent ship design and engineering company is planning to launch the new office this spring, which will be headed by long-time C-Job employee Nikos Papapanagiotou.
In addition to a response to increased demand, the decision to expand operations with a Greek office was based on staying close to (potential) clients. According to Papapanagiotou, ‘Greece has a rich history in shipping and remains at the centre of the global maritime industry today.’
Over the C-Job has delivered many innovative ship designs and engineering projects, such as for ferries, dredging, offshore (wind) and yachts. The company’s activities also include a dedicated Research and Development (R&D) department.
Papapanagiotou expects these R&D activities to grow with the establishment of the new office in Greece. ‘We’ve a history of working with naval architects and engineers from Greece and have close relations to several universities. By opening an office in Athens, we’re excited to be able to provide opportunities for local talent; both young and senior, to come work for us as well as expand on our Research and Development efforts.’
With the opening of the Athens office, C-Job now operates in six locations. The existing offices are: three in the Netherlands, one in Ukraine, and one in Houston, Texas.
