Since our integration of the ACA Marine business we have prioritised La Ciotat as a strategically important Mediterranean refit location, especially with the major expansion plans recently announced by La Ciotat Shipyard. We are investing in the expansion of the team and facilities in La Ciotat to create another important operational refit hub for Pinmar, and Mar’s new role will drive this development of the business in the region. Mar will have access to all the group’s resources and the full support of the central management team; with her dynamic style and strong commercial acumen I am confident she will be a great asset to Pinmar and its development in France.”
