Design software company Cadmatic is expanding its presence in Canada to support Seaspan Shipyards and to drive business development in the North American region, with a local subsidiary having been set up in Vancouver.

The recruitment of employees has started, with the first already hired. For the immediate future, Cadmatic plans to recruit more hull and outfitting application specialists, with other recruitments to support business development to follow. Cadmatic’s key customer in the region, Seaspan Shipyards, specialises in new construction of and repair work on ferries, Coast Guard vessels, naval ships, barges, tugs, yachts, fishing vessels, Arctic Class and research vessels of all types and sizes.

Cadmatic VP Marine Geert Tepper said: "Initially, our primary focus is on ensuring that Seaspan gets the best possible support, both locally in Canada and from our other customer support centres when necessary. We have other customers in North America that will also benefit from our increased local presence. There is a lot of commercial shipbuilding for local markets in North America and there is, for example, a lot of river barges, workboats and ferries being built in the region. The construction of coastguard and naval vessels and their support vessels is also a very big business. We can add value to all of these kinds of design and construction projects.”
