Aboitiz shipyard not giving up hope

Manila: A top official of the Aboitiz-owned ship building firm FBMA Marine Inc., which is part of the shipping group Aboitiz Transport System Corp., (ATSC) said it will strongly consider reopening its shipyard when overseas orders come in.
"We are not giving up on the FBMA because we remain optimistic that the shipbuilding industry will bounce back, perhaps not anytime soon, but definitely in the future," said FBMA Marine Inc. Chief Executive Officer Roberto Aboitiz in an exclusive interview with Manila Bulletin recently.  [07/02/11]
