C-Job Naval Architects is set to open a new office in the USA. The Dutch naval architecture firm has selected Houston, Texas as the base to expand its business in the United States.
Talking about the decision to expand the company’s operations, C-Job CEO Basjan Faber says: “Opening an office in Houston will allow us to be in close proximity to our American clients. It will also support our already ongoing American projects.”
Client focused design process
C-Job is the largest independent ship design and engineering company in the Netherlands. The company has grown considerably in recent years. “We have doubled our staff and opened our first international office in Ukraine – in addition to completing some exciting projects.”
The company believes that clients should be closely involved with the entire ship design process. As an independent company with a multidisciplinary team, the ship owners and yards can benefit from a combination of own ideas and experience together with new C-Job solutions. This brings great benefits to the final design as has been proven in the past.
Bringing C-Job innovations to the American market
C-Job has been sharpening its focus on the US maritime market in recent years. This began with participating in the Western Dredging Association (WEDA) conference and taking on a US-based agent. The ambition continued in November 2018 when C-Job entered a strategic partnership with Seattle-based naval architecture firm Glosten. Furthermore, the company has exhibited at American maritime trade shows such as the International Work Boat Show (New Orleans) and OTC (Houston).
C-Job will be bringing its strong track record in ship design and engineering of multiple maritime sectors, including Dredging, Offshore (Wind), Ferries, Yachts and Workboats, to the American market. This will include the innovations produced by its dedicated Research and Development department.
“It’s a sign of our dedication and commitment that we are opening a C-Job office in Houston, Texas to further realize our American Dream,” Basjan concludes.
