World Painting is the primary contractor for all ship constructions for the Italian Navy. Building on this trust, the company also takes on contracts for foreign naval forces, such as the C.6220 Abu Dhabi, C.6235 Algerian Navy, and C.6186 Fleet Tanker for the Indian Navy.

Over the years, World Painting has expanded its operations, opening new shipyards in Morocco, Spain, and Angola (at the request of the Prime Minister).



Our portfolio boasts many significant jobs for Fincantieri: between 2010 and 2015, we contributed to constructing two 150-meter super yachts. In 2015, we executed Fremm orders for the Italian Navy, Viking Cruises, Regent, and Silver.


Our growth has been marked by significant work milestones, demonstrating that passion for our work, professionalism, and quality have generated loyal commercial relationships with the largest civil / military and industrial transport owners.

We are the primary company for all constructions of Italian Navy Ships, to the extent that commissions from foreign Navies have been carried out by us (such as C.6220 Abu Dhabi, C.6235 Algerian Navy, C.6186 Fleet Tanker for Indian Navy).

Over the years, we have had Shipyards in Morocco, Spain, and Angola (in Angola for the Prime Minister).

World Painting has also performed work in both the Industrial and Off-Shore sectors by completing the Gorgon Project with three modules for Nuovo Pignone Company. Over the years, World Painting has worked on various oil platform projects.

So far, we have intervened in more than 250 vessels, including refitting and new constructions, demonstrating our leadership in the industry. We want to emphasize that there have never been disputes or issues related to poorly executed projects with any company.
