ASRY Receives 'Shipyard Of the Year' Award

ASRY, one of the most experienced marine repair facilities in the Arabian Gulf, has been named the ‘Shipyard Of the Year’ at the Lloyd’s List Middle East and Indian Subcontinent Awards 2013.

The event, hosted by Omar Butti, one of the most sought after presenters on the region’s TV networks, was held on the 29th of October at the Grand Hyatt in Dubai.

Judges recognised the yard’s resilience throughout challenging market conditions and ability to grow, improve and expand when competitors could not, reports the Gulf-Daily.
