Joe Corvelli, CEO, Gibdock
Branding is essential in any business, particularly ship repair. This past December, Cammell Laird (Gibraltar) changed its name to Gibdock to avoid confusion with Cammell Laird Shiprepairers and Shipbuilders Ltd., a separate company in the U.K.
Located at the mouth of the Mediterranean, Gibdock enjoys a prime location for capturing ship repair business. It has three dry docks, the longest of which is Dock 1 at 272m, is serviced by 10 cranes, a 300m main wharf, and a 435m mole.
We managed to catch up with Gibdock CEO Joe Corvelli to ask him about his company’s strategy for delivering value to customers in a very competitive ship repair market and how an American and a Webb Institute graduate wound up running a ship repair business in Gibraltar.
