Palumbo Shipyard has been in the shiprepair industry for over forty-five years. The Company was founded in 1967 and started its activity in the shiprepair field operating now in construction, refit, repair and maintenance of every type of vessel in its four shipyards in Naples, Messina and with two yards in Malta, as well as in Marseille and in Monaco. During the last years, the Company has been expanding its core business, through the creation of a platform in the heart of the Mediterranean, building a network in the shiprepair industry and also in the offshore sector where the shipyard performed complete major projects, including refits to semi-submersible oil rigs, crane barges, Wind Turbine Installation vessels, Seismic and offshore supply, and also drill ships for some of the most important Companies in the field. Such logistic platform has the technical and timing ability required to satisfy any Owners’ demands, providing them, at the same time, with the widest and most complete range of services. The Company invested a lot in professionalism, reaching very high professional level of its technical staff working with quality systems and safety in accordance with ISO 9001 certification and the OHSAS 18001, the health and safety management system certification. Thanks to them, Palumbo Group is even more competitive and able to show its improved service levels, with faster turnaround times. With Malta Shipyard acquisition, nowadays, Palumbo manages an extended platform comprising ten dry- docks ranging from 40 meters up to maximum 360 meters in length, 5.000 meters of quays and an operational area covering about 500.000 square meters, offering a substantial range of products to the general maritime, shiprepair, and specifically to offshore and energy, yachting and conversion sectors from its network of shipyards in the centre of Mediterranean.
Now, after three generations, it has changed its internal organization from a family run business to a business run by a Board of Directors and a very agile corporate structure. Having built a strong reputation on the commercial market, 45 years from its foundation, the Group started looking for new areas of expansion and decided to move into the highly competitive superyacht arena.
