    MEYER WERFT selects CGI to advance its global growth strategy through IT modernization

    MEYER WERFT, one of the world's leading shipbuilders, has awarded CGI an IT modernization contract to help advance the shipbuilder's global growth strategy, CGI said in a media release.

    CGI's work will support MEYER WERFT in expanding its business through modernization on both the production and IT sides, as well as through ongoing digitalization.

    "Our partnership with CGI is the cornerstone of our IT strategy, supporting not only IT-related work, but also investments in plant and machinery and laying the foundation for future digitalization projects," says Dr. Paul Meyer, CIO of MEYER WERFT. "CGI will support us technologically in building a modern infrastructure for our new systems, as well as ensuring the business continuity of our legacy systems, which to a large extent still run the business."

    As part of its work, CGI will leverage its proven automation tools to drive efficiency and reliability, providing a stable and flexible platform for future operations. The new agreement with MEYER WERFT also offers CGI the opportunity to expand its work through additional projects.

    CGI's local proximity, global delivery and operational excellence will be key success factors in helping MEYER WERFT pursue global expansion. CGI will work closely with MEYER WERFT in Germany, Finland and around the world to deliver a seamless service.  

    "CGI's local industry expertise, combined with our global insight, puts us in a great position to assist MEYER WERFT in fulfilling its long-term strategy," explains CGI's Torsten Strass, Senior Vice-President in Germany. "We look forward to supporting MEYER WERFT in its transformation program."
