A Brief History


The Procurement department’s original inception came from our ship repair work.  Whilst working on the day to day ship repair and fabrication jobs we would find our customers asking us to supply a variety of engineering and consumable spares.  The obvious choice was to dedicate personnel to these requests and the Procurement division was born.

We now have a team of eight specialists who are quoting, sourcing and ordering on a daily basis for all of our key accounts.  There are another four men in the warehouse packing and ensuring delivery is made in good order and on time.
