The Italian stabilisation specialist has also formed a major agreement with a Chinese yard
Italian stabilisation specialist CMC Marine recently organised a roadshow in Taiwan to present its products to the Asian market.
The company organised a series of events and meetings at Kha Shing’s Pier 22 Marina in Kaohsiung with over 30 managers from the main shipyards in the area (including Ocean Alexander, Horizon, Asia Harbour, Kha Shing and Johnson Yachts), during which CMC Marine presented its latest generation products.
CMC’s main partner in the region will be Ninety Nine, a company with over 40 years’ experience working in the marine and yachting sector. Ninety Nine 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 one of China’s leading boatbuilders, HeySea, to supply the Stabilis Electra HS120 on its new 142ft flaship, which is planned for delivery next year.
“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,” says CMC Marine CEO Alessandro Cappiello.
”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 Pisa-based company says it’s goal is to offer the same level of quality, in terms of both production and assistance, in all the geographical areas into which it expands.
