The Meyer family is building ships since 221 years. Ever since, the family company’s success relied on a long-term approach that aimed to develop the technology, advance the skillset of employees, and reinvest profits. The basis for this success is a stable ownership structure. To ensure this stability also for the future, the family has decided to donate its shares into family foundations. The legal form of a German family foundation is a proven framework to ensure a long-term stable ownership in a single hand supporting the sustainable development of the shipyards in Turku, Papenburg and Warnemünde.
Digital transformation and Industry 4.0 are playing an increasingly important role for European shipyards to remain competitive and stand out from their rivals. In future, MEYER WERFT will be putting a greater focus on pooling its IT expertise and standardising the software across all its sites.
