O'Boyle Firm Named U.S. Representative For Italian CNOMV

Richard F. O'Boyle, president, announces that the firm of Richard F. O'Boyle, Inc. has been appointed U.S. sales representative for CNOMV (Cantieri Navali e Officine Meccaniche di Venezia, S.P.A.) of Venice, a member of the Fincantieri group of Italian s h i p y a r d s . Antonio Marceglia, president of the yard, announced the appointment during his recent visit to the United States to attend a general meeting of the Fincantieri group with its customers and U.S. representatives.

The occasion for the meeting was the renewed emphasis by the Fincantieri group on the United States market.

As all trends indicate that more shipboard work will be done by s h o r e s i d e l a b o r , Mr. O'Boyle's firm was organized last year to represent the sales interests of ship repair organizations. There are many excellent ship repair groups worldwide who do quality work but are virtually unknown in the U.S. market.

One of the first companies to sign up with Richard F. O'Boyle, Inc. was North Florida Shipyards of Jacksonville, whose principal Joseph B. Schiffert has been in ship repair for 30 years. Beginning as boiler insulation specialists (Thermal Engineering) 13 years ago, North Florida now employs a work force of 300 in all crafts, who can do virtually any repair or conversion to ships, barges, and towboats with the exception of drydocking.

The O'Boyle firm also represents repair organizations in Taiwan, India, Japan, and Singapore.
