The company is fuelling the current production ramp up with its profits. CEO of Meyer Turku, Jan Meyer, is pleased with the financial results explains a Meyer press release.
“We are on a good path to meet the goals we have set. We need to, however, double our production in the next four years to meet the demands in our order book. Investments to the facilities and our personnel with first-in-series ships have impacted our profitability in 2018 and will continue to do so during the next couple of years,” Jan Meyer states.
In 2018 Meyer Turku delivered one ship, New Mein Schiff 1, to German TUI Cruises. New Mein Schiff 2 was handed over to the same owner in January 2019. 2018 also saw the start of hull production for Costa Cruises “Smeralda” and the start of production for Carnival Cruise Lines “Mardi Gras”, both 180 000 gross tonnage cruise ships. The order book of Meyer Turku now has seven large cruise ships.
