Fincantieri, the sea ahead.
Fincantieri is one of the world’s largest shipbuilding groups and number one for diversification and innovation.
It is leader in cruise ship design and construction and a reference player in all high-tech shipbuilding industry sectors, from naval to off shore vessels, from high-complexity special vessels and ferries to mega yachts, as well as in ship repairs and conversions, systems and equipment production and after-sales services.
Headquartered in Trieste (Italy), the Group has built more than 7,000 vessels in its over 230 years of history.
With around 19,500 employees, of whom more than 8,300 in Italy, 20 shipyards in 4 continents, today Fincantieri is the leading Western shipbuilder.
It has among its clients the major cruise operators, the Italian and the US Navy, in addition to several foreign navies, and it is partner of some of the main European defense companies within supranational programs.
Fincantieri's business is widely diversified by end markets, geographical exposure and by client base, with revenue mainly split between cruise ship, naval and off shore vessel construction.
Compared with less diversified players, such diversification allows it to mitigate the effects of any fluctuations in demand on the end markets served.
The Group operates through the following three segments:
• Shipbuilding: encompassing the businesses of cruise ships, naval vessels and other products and services (ferries and mega yachts);
• Off shore: encompassing the design and construction of high-end off shore support vessels, expedition cruise vessels, specialized ships, and vessels for off shore wind farms and open ocean aquaculture, as well as the offer of innovative products in the field of drillships and semi-submersible drilling rigs;
• Equipment, Systems and Services: encompassing the design and manufacture of high-tech equipment and systems, such as stabilization, propulsion, positioning and power generation systems, ship automation systems, steam turbines, integrated systems and ship accommodation, and the provision of repair and conversion services, logistical support and after-sales services.
