MJM Group Cruises to Poland
The international specialist in cruise ship refurbishment MJM Group has established a presence in Poland with the opening of an office in Gdanski.
The marine outfitter said in a release that the office, based in Pruszcz Gdański, will be primarily a Design and Administrative hub which will support key activities and projects at the company’s headquarters in Northern Ireland.
Gary Annett, MJM Group CEO, said: “MJM Group has a long and proud association with Poland. Many of our employees in Northern Ireland are originally from Poland and we have very strong Polish supply chain. We are delighted to open an office here in Pruszcz Gdański and cement our relationship with Poland.”
“MJM Group has recorded significant growth over recent years which has seen our workforce and our global reach strengthen,” adds Annett.
“In 2018, we have expanded our workforce in Northern Ireland and we have opened an office in Southampton, England. Opening a branch in Poland is part of our global expansion plans and a reflection of our commitment to attracting a talented pool of people and a robust supply chain from Poland and other EU countries. As the UK continues to navigate its way through the Brexit negotiations it is prudent for MJM Group to expand our global reach to ensure we have the resources to continue to grow as a leader in the global marine outfitting market,” Annett added.
Annett was accompanied by the Mayor of Pruszcz Gdański, Mr Janusz Wróbel who welcomed MJM Group’s expansion plans.
“We are pleased that MJM Group, a company which has been linked to the Pomeranian region for more than 10 years through its support of our local supply chain, has now decided to establish a permanent office in our city. Pruszcz Gdanski, which is within the Baltic Investment Zone, has become one of the most important locations for foreign investments in the region thanks to our infrastructure – we are at the intersection of the A1 motorway and close to an international airport which makes us a very attractive location for leading global companies to invest. We wish MJM Group every success here in Poland and in their global operations.”
MJM Group is a world leader in marine outfitting and has refitted some of the world’s largest cruise ships. In 2018, it completed its first ever contract in China and currently has a strong pipeline of projects for 2019 and beyond.
