Company Overview

NAPA is the world leading software house supplying solutions for ship design and operation with a mission to improve safety and eco-efficiency of the global maritime industry.

With a solid track record in setting new standards for 3D modeling of ships and ship performance analyses, NAPA’s philosophy is that true eco-efficiency starts with the build process and continues through the operational lifecycle of a vessel.

NAPA software are used by shipyards, owners, designers, classification societies, research institutes, authorities, consultancies and universities around the world. NAPA has more than 400 user organizations for design application and over 2,500 installations onboard.

Headquartered in Finland, NAPA employs 170 people in the fields of naval architecture, shipping and information technology.

The NAPA Group has subsidiaries in Japan, Korea, China, Singapore, the USA, Romania and India and representatives in Germany and Greece. With an extensive international network we can ensure worldwide support for our solutions.

In spring 2014, NAPA Group was acquired by one of the world's leading classification societies, ClassNK. The change in the ownership guarantees adequate resources for NAPA to develop its products and services to meet the needs and expectations of its customers even better than before. However, NAPA continues to operate independently, maintaining neutrality and full confidentiality when it comes to any customer specific information.

NAPA Group has been recognized

Tietoviikko, Finnish publication for IT professionals, recognised NAPA Group as Finland's best IT company in 2009. The reasons for this prestigious acknowledgement included, among others, NAPA's high international standing in the marine industry and the Group's stable financial growth.

Her Excellency Tarja Halonen, President of the Republic of Finland, presented the 2009 Internationalisation Award to NAPA Group. Intense investment in personnel and product development ensures a strong market position.
