CMC Marine has announced a three-year, €10 million growth plan, based around three themes: product, production capacity and offering.
The company was founded in 2005 by Alessandro Cappiello, one of the earliest in the electric stabilisation system sector.
There are now more than 2,500 installations on yachts and superyachts, the company’s turnover has more than doubled in the last three years, and there are technical assistance centres around the world.
Also part of CMC Marine’s plan is the new Salerno production site, which is scheduled to open in December 2023.
The plant covers an area of 10,000sqm and includes three industrial sheds, and plant will allow mechanical component production to be increased and make it possible to bring the production of GRP elements and the STAB line in-house, improving the efficiency of the production chain.
In addition, in July 2023, the company announced the opening of a new 600sqm site in Poole (UK), and a major development plan for the US market carried forward by Raffaele Invrea, who was recently appointed MD of CMC Marine USA.
The third step in the company’s growth plan is its investment to expand its electric products.
To achieve this, CMC Marine announced a partnership with Gyro Marine in November, resulting in the inclusion of gyroscopes in the product range and further extending the brand’s range.
At METSTRADE, the company showed its new LR 180 and LR 250 models, the latter being the largest electrically actuated fin system the company has ever produced.
The two new units are designed for boats from 50 to 100m in length, expanding the range of products offered by CMC Marine to superyachts and mega yachts.
The new series of latest generation electric stabilisation systems, Stabilis 5.0, will be available from spring 2024.
The system uses an algorithm to improve performance with features including immediate feedback on roll motion reduction, performance optimisation based on sea conditions, Mitsubishi electronics, an interchangeable AC/DC power supply and display, assistance and log interface) system.
