20 May, 2016 KERSHIP won the bid to own STX LORIENT shipyard in Lanester

STX FRANCE just announced they chose KERSHIP, the joint-venture of PIRIOU (55%) and DCNS (45%) to take over the facilities and staff of their subsidiary STX LORIENT located in Lanester. 

PIRIOU welcomes the fact that KERSHIP can thus operate an additional production capacity necessary for the pursuit of its growth and in particular benefit from the experience and support of the 42 employees of the site. 

The presence of KERSHIP in Lanester, simultaneously with PIRIOU in Lorient and Concarneau, in close proximity to DCNS and the inter-branch organization of these two harbours helps to strengthen an organized, diversified and therefore stronger South Brittany Naval Pole.
