Alnmaritec, based in Northumberland, is best known for the design and build of commercial workboats. This week though the company officially launched its new ‘Wimbourne Quay Repair Centre’ at the historic Port of Blyth site.
With 150m of berths / quayside frontage and over 100,000 square feet of covered workshops the new repair centre is in a position to provide services to a wide variety of clients, as Managing Director Chris Millman explains, “Alnmaritec has a reputation for providing high quality new build workboats but we can also utilise the enormous depth of expertise within our workforce to undertake all types of boat repair projects. We have over 120 highly skilled craftsmen with the ability to deal with all aspects of maintenance, refit and repair.”
However it’s not just at the 5 acre Blyth site that Alnmaritec provide these repair services. Mr. Millman said “we support clients and their projects all over the world in terms of maintenance and repair. As an example we’ve had men working in West Africa continuously for the last four months on various projects for different clients. We’re happy to provide these services wherever the client needs them, not just at our own facility.”
At that facility however there are a number of impressive features, from the 100 tonne boat crane to the paint facilities and the mechanical and electrical workshops. All of which is designed to ensure that any client, from a fisherman with one boat to a multi-national with a large fleet, can expect the same highest quality service from the Alnmaritec team.
