Ciramar Shipyards signed a strategic alliance with Fassmer Technical Projects that establishes the basis for cooperation in various areas, including design and construction of new ships and multipurpose vessels manufactured in the Dominican Republic. The scope of the deal also includes maintenance, manufacture, and local marketing of mechanical products, including propellers, stabilization and steering systems, thrusters, azimuth thrusters; as well as naval automation; ship repair; and personnel training with consulting in the design of naval devices.

“We were honored to be received by President Abinader. We were extremely impressed with his detailed questions and knowledge about the industries we are involved in,” said Craig Gundry, General Manager of Fassmer Technical Projects. “There was a great focus on the importance of job creation within his country, as well as creating a positive environment for economic improvement. This week represents the realization of a shared vision between Fassmer and Ciramar to create a new standard of ship repair and ship building in the Caribbean.”
