Piriou sets up in Senegal
Following the establishment of its shipyard in Nigeria in 2004, in Vietnam in 2006 and in Algeria in 2013, Concarneau-based shipbuilding group Piriou has extended its international development by establishing itself in Senegal.
Piriou has partnered with Ngom & Freres, represented by Ababacar Ngom as managing director, a major Senegalese player of the maritime sector for more than twenty years. Together they have created Piriou Ngom Senegal. The new company offers services for ship repair and shipbuilding, especially for fishing, service vessels and defence.
This new establishment is part of Piriouâ€™s strategy aimed at getting closer to its customers based on striking alliances with strong local partners, with technical and logistic support from France and above all thanks to local staff.
â€˜There have been vessels from PIRIOU in West Africa since 1979 and we have always considered this country to be very promising,â€™ said Piriou Group president Pascal Piriou.
â€˜In the light of our successful experience in Nigeria and Algeria, our establishment in Senegal was a logical next more if we consider its diversified potential. If we add services vessels and vessels of the Senegalese Navy to the fishing fleet, including the pirogue fleet, there is a true potential for local development. As in Nigeria where we have 200 employees, weâ€™ll rely on Senegalese staff and subcontractors. We are setting up in Dakar very humbly but with great confidence thanks to our partner Ngom & Freres with whom we share the same values.â€™
