This week, superyacht suppliers Global Services officially launches a specialist company division focussing on services for New Build projects. Consolidating over 15 years of new build project expertise, ‘Global Services New Build’ offers a range of services designed to provide yards, build crew and project managers with timely and effective support throughout the build process. Services include ‘storage and consolidated shipping’, ‘specialist labeling and barcoding’ and ‘yacht inventory’.
Over the past 15 years, Global Services has been involved with over 300 new build projects ranging from 30m to 160m plus. Founder of the company Richard Gardiner explains, ‘We understand the project life cycle and have refined our range of New Build services to reflect this. Our staff have accumulated a tremendous amount of experience working with new build projects and by providing a dedicated service, we’re ultimately improving our customer service and experience’. Global Services New Build division offers a comprehensive ‘inventory service’ which involves cataloguing all major onboard equipment and listing the spares required throughout the yacht’s lifetime. Working closely with the major planned maintenance software companies ensures the information collected is easily reconcilable with onboard planned maintenance systems.
Guy Sayers, Build Engineer on a Gigayacht delivered in 2010 comments, "I worked closely with Global Services for over 2 ½ years with regard to the procurement , organisation and delivery of the technical spares and tools inventory for the vessel. This stock ran into many thousands of individual items of considerable total asset value. An excellent rapport was developed due to Global Services intimate understanding of the business and the build process. It was as if we had employed another highly experienced member on our build team.’ Storage and consolidated shipping is also an extremely useful provision for yachts in build. Richard adds, ‘New Build projects can purchase a large amount of equipment but not necessarily have the capacity for storing it. We’ll hold goods, sending consolidated shipments as and when the yacht requires it, freeing up space for yachts in build and cutting down on shipment costs".
Other services include ‘barcoding’ so spares can easily be reconciled with the ship’s onboard purchasing system and bespoke packaging and labeling services mean goods can be packed per department and/or order, with the option for customers to design their own custom part-label accordingly.
