A Netherlands based naval architect is responding to continued growth by moving into larger premises and creating several new job positions.

The size of the team at C-Job has grown significantly in recent years which now comprises of over 80 maritime engineers and naval architects in the Netherlands and another 40 in Nikolayev, Ukraine.

“With capacity for just 15 people at the old office in Joure, we really were limited by space,” said Jelle Grijpstra, general manager at the Heerenveen office. “At our new offices Heerenveen we have room for up to 50 people. This matches our ambitions for expansion.”

New premises

C-Job’s new office in Heerenveen is just one development relating to C-Job’s growth. Other recent examples include last year’s opening of the company’s third Dutch office as well as the first international office in Nikolayev, Ukraine.

In future, with representatives working in the USA, UAE and India, the company is aiming to expand further in the international maritime sector.

In anticipation of sustained future growth, C-Job has also made some organisational and management changes including appointing new general managers at each of its Dutch offices.

It has also set up a so-called ‘C-Job Group’ which includes the newly created positions of technical director, head of sales and head of business support.

Back in February, C-Job Naval Architects delivered the design for a wind-assisted general cargo vessel to Dutch shipping company Switijnk Shipping.

In January, it delivered the concept design of a series of five sustainable car and passenger ferries to the City of Amsterdam.
