Fincantieri is one of the world's largest shipbuilding groups, which in over 200 years of maritime history has built more than 7,000 vessels. It is world leader in cruise ship construction and a reference player in other sectors, from naval vessels to cruise ferries, from mega yachts to special high value-added vessels, ship repairs and conversions.
Headquartered in Trieste, the Group has a total of nearly 19,000 employees all over the world and in Italy alone it has eight shipyards and two design centres, one in Trieste, the largest in Europe, and the other in Genoa.
Fincantieri operates in the United States through its subsidiary Fincantieri Marine Group (FMG). This company, which serves both civilian and government customers, including the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard, has three shipyards (Marinette Marine, Bay Shipbuilding, Ace Marine), all located in the Great Lakes region.
Fincantieri is present in the UAE with Etihad Ship Building, a joint venture set up with Melara Middle East and Al Fattan Ship Industries, to design, produce and sell different types of civilian and military ships as well as perform maintenance and refitting activities.
Since 2002 Fincantieri has built or has orders to build 104 ships, worth a total of Euro 24 billion, and has developed dozens of prototypes in the various business segments in which it operates.
In January 2013 Fincantieri acquired VARD. Thanks to this transaction Fincantieri improved its competitive position in the offshore industry, becoming one of the leading groups in this sector.
