New office building of TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING’s design subsidiary in the Philippines completed: increasing design personnel to enhance design work capacity
April 16, 2019
The new office building of TSUNEISHI TECHNICAL SERVICES (PHILS.), Inc. (Location: Buanoy, Balamban, Cebu, Philippines; President: Segismundo F. Exaltacion, Jr.; hereafter: TTSP), the Philippines design subsidiary of TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING, located in West Cebu Industrial Park, was completed on April 15, 2019.
Aiming at diversifying the ship types, such as feeder container carriers, product tankers, etc., besides the mainstay product, bulk carriers, it is necessary to have enough design personnel to cope with the design work increasing. It is expected that TTSP personnel will be increased to about 1,000 in the future. To support this strategy, and as part of our efforts to improve the work environment, we began construction of a new office building on land adjacent to TSUNEISHI HEAVY INDUSTRIES (CEBU), Inc., which is TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING’s manufacturing hub in the Philippines. The building has been completed and our personnel have moved in.
With the design personnel aging and the productive population decreasing in Japan, TTSP is expected to secure a young workforce and serve as an educational hub for engineers. We aim to achieve growth by continuing to expand our response capabilities and business operations, including cooperation with Group-affiliated companies.
