The French refit yard is now known as MB92 La Ciotat
Compositeworks, the French refit yard, has changed its name to MB92 La Ciotat following the company’s acquisition last year by the MB92 Group and their subsequent 100% takeover of the Blohm+Voss La Ciotat activities this summer.
According to a company statement, the two yards spent months sharing expertise, experience and best practices between their two locations in Barcelona and La Ciotat.
In order to present transparency and clarity to the market, it was unanimously decided that Compositeworks should adopt the MB92 brand. However, it was agreed that as both shipyards are located in different, albeit complimentary locations, these distinguishing characteristics should be highlighted in the new visual identity of the shipyard.
MB92 La Ciotat therefore retains a blue colour and the shape of the logo is inspired by the shape of France, reflecting also the advantages of a location that is close to Mediterranean cruising grounds and within two hours of Monaco and Antibes. La Ciotat is also the site for a future 4,000-tonne ship lift for which MB92 La Ciotat has submitted a proposal.
“This is an extremely exciting time for our company and we look forward to showing our new visual identity in person and alongside our sister yard MB92 Barcelona at the Monaco Yacht Show,” says Ben Mennem, founder of Compositeworks and MD of MB92 La Ciotat.
Pepe García-Aubert, president of the MB92 Group, says: “We now have two extraordinary facilities at our disposal and, above all, a team of 250 staff who are professional, experienced and totally committed to providing our clients with an excellent refit experience.
“Dedicated to the highest quality service, refit, and repair of superyachts, we are now an international shipyard network with local passion, expertise and knowledge, equipped to manage projects of every scale,” he adds.
