Naval architecture and engineering firm C-Job will
open new office facilities in Rotterdam, operational from March
1, 2017.

The new office, which the company said will open in response to
growing market demands as well as to attract new employees from a
larger geographical area, is C-Job's third, after the head office
in Hoofddorp and the branch office in Joure.

"One of the main reasons for establishing an office in Rotterdam
is to do with our clients," said C-Job's Design Director, Basjan
Faber. "Rotterdam is home to a real maritime cluster of
companies; all the major players are there. Because we want to be
close to our current and future clients, it's a logical step to
open an office in this global maritime hotspot."

"At the same time, we are getting a lot of job enquiries from
people who are interested in working for us who live in and
around Rotterdam. This new office will give us greater access to
these people. In other words; better opportunities to find
skilled professionals for our team," Faber continued.

"At the time of opening, the new premises will be the working
location for six C-Job engineers; all of whom already live in the
Rotterdam area. The key point is that the people working in the
new office are used to working in our head office in Hoofddorp.
This means that they are familiar with our methods and
procedures, our quality systems and our culture. This is what we
are aiming for: to repeat the C-Job culture in the new office."

After the initial start-up phase, C-Job said it is looking to
expand the engineering capacity in Rotterdam to around 30 people.
"The idea for the Rotterdam office is to become an independent
operating office," Faber said. "They shall have all the main
disciplines to perform projects by themselves - project
management, and all levels of engineers, for instance."

Heading the new office will be Maarten Veldhuizen, a business
manager with experience in the offshore wind business, heavy lift
and oil and gas industry.

With the expansion to Rotterdam confirmed, C-Job said it is also
exploring the potential for additional offices even further
afield. "We have an international focus - we know that we want to
expand our team and that the Dutch market is just not big
enough," Basjan said. "Therefore we are looking abroad for
possibilities."

While the company currently has sales agents in certain regions
of the world, the next step is to found worldwide proposal
offices. "Using the same principle as we have used in Rotterdam,
we have ideas to copy the C-Job concept to other locations;
Spain, Germany and China, for example. As long as we have the
projects, the talented people and we are able to guarantee
quality, we will continue to expand our business," Basjan said.
