Papenburg has meanwhile become the largest shipbuilding location in Europe, while Neptun Werft in Warnemünde is the largest supplier of river cruise craft. We will now be opening an office in Luxemburg this autumn, which will control central purchasing for Papenburg, Rostock and Turku. The main aim is to emphasise our international ori-entation, to enable us to prevail in the murderously competitive world market. This is not a tax-saving measure; our taxes will continue to be paid in Papenburg, Rostock and Turku, just as before.
