On August 6th, ASTILLERO TSUNEISHI PARAGUAY (hereafter: ATP), a TSUNEISHI Group shipbuilding base located in the South American Republic of Paraguay, opened its new office at its factory in Villeta, Central State.
Anticipating future growth, ATP has boosted capacity beyond that of its previous office while consolidating and improving functions, and has thereby achieved greater efficiency. Designed with large glass windows that impart a sense of openness, the office is composed of three buildings: a conference room building, administration building, and supervisor building. Outside the buildings, a verdant garden with benches, a place provided for employees to take breaks, spreads far and wide.
As ATP marks its 10th anniversary this year, by taking advantage of the newly-built office as a new start, the company is aiming at achieving further growth.
