MB92 Group reorganizes


MB92 Group’s Henk Dreijer has been promoted to chief business development officer, according to a company statement. MB92 Group, which operates refit and repair shipyards in Barcelona and La Ciotat, states that in his new position, Dreijer will develop strategic operations, with a focus on sourcing major refit projects.

Txema Rubio assumes Dreijer’s former role as commercial director. Rubio has experience in the company’s projects department and was formerly quotations director. In addition, two departments have been created to address customer contracts and after sales, to be run by veteran employees Mary Clara Batchelor and Paco Sanz, respectively.

The goal of this reorganization, according to Dreijer, is to create seamless service between MB92 Barcelona and MB92 La Ciotat, and to offer clients a more efficient quote and planning process.

MB92 Group, which acquired Compositeworks in Barcelona in late 2017 and Blohm+Voss La Ciotat in 2018, stated that the integration of the two yards under the group umbrella has drawn more business and larger yachts at both locations. MB92 La Ciotat is reportedly operating at full capacity.

In anticipation of continued growth, the group plans to install a 4,800-ton shiplift in Barcelona in a few months, and a 4,000-ton shiplift in La Ciotat in 2022.
