Alberto Maestrini, VardCEO, said: “The merger further enhances economies of scale, simplifies the decision-making process, reduces the administrative costs, eliminates double or parallel activities, combines service activities carried
out in the two yards, improving the overall quality and grants a better management of the assets and the resources of the two yards. This important step is about competitiveness and growth with a solid perspective for Vard shipyards in Romania. It is also about Vard and Fincantieri commitment for our skilled staff that has been working with us for so many years.” The merger will create the most important player on the Romanian market in the shipbuilding industry, with more than 5,000 direct employees and 2,000 other employees of the companies working on the two platforms.
