Vincent Faujour, PIRIOU Group declares: “We are very happy and proud to involve the ATG site and its 300 employees within the PIRIOU group. This shipyard with which we have been working as a subcontractor in recent years enjoys a very good local and international reputation. We will rely on the management team that we have already strengthened and will continue to develop the site which offers great potential.

He adds: “While our Breton sites have had a heavy workload for several years, the acquisition of ATG strengthens our industrial capacities and gives us the means to achieve our ambitions, namely to double our activity by 2025. We used to subcontract certain hulls in Eastern Europe to third-party shipyards in the event of overloading. We will now be able to offer our customers, civilians and soldiers, French and foreign, 100% PIRIOU constructions – equipped and delivered to Concarneau – at a competitive price.
