MSC Group Establishes Miami, Florida, North American Headquarters

International shipping line MSC Group plans to consolidate and establish its North American headquarters in Miami, Florida. The $100 million project is expected to create approximately 250 jobs in Dade County.

The 130,000-square-foot office space, located at Block 55 at Sawyer's Walk, will house the operations for MSC Cruises, Explora Journeys, and MSC Cargo.

“We are thrilled to invest in the future of MSC and Miami-Dade County by making this important move,” said Fabio Santucci, President and CEO of MSC USA. “Miami has been a pivotal part of our growth story in the U.S., and we are proud of our strong history of driving the local economy. The Beacon Council was a significant driver in helping us make our decision. They played an instrumental part in making us feel welcome to make this commitment to expanding in South Florida.”

Switzerland-based Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A, branded as MSC is the world's largest container shipping company by both fleet size and cargo capacity.

"This announcement underscores Miami's status as a world-class destination and premier access point for companies seeking to extend their influence throughout the continent and the Caribbean," noted Rodrick T. Miller President and CEO of the Miami-Dade Beacon Council. "Miami-Dade provides an ideal backdrop for a distinguished brand like MSC Cruises, celebrated for its contemporary offerings and international flair. With our diverse and skilled workforce, coupled with a top-tier cruise port, Miami warmly embraces MSC Cruises. We are thrilled to support and champion their expansion in the region."

MSC Cruises is the third-largest cruise company in the world, after Carnival Corporation & plc and Royal Caribbean Group.
