Construction Navale de Bordeaux (a subsidiary of Bénéteau – 550 employees – 2012 revenue of €110 M), whose activity has been growing constantly, has a huge project to extend its production capacities.
It recently purchased 5000 m² of former brownfield on the Quai de Brazza in Bordeaux.
CNB wishes to launch a new 76-foot yacht, the CNB76, next March and is set to invest €6 to 8 M in the project.
To help sustain this growth the shipyard may hire up to 150 new people within 3 years.
