Yorkshire marine organisation expands with new Scarborough branch
A Yorkshire maritime organisation is expanding with a new branch in Scarborough.
Team Humber Marine Alliance, which has its main office in Hull, is opening a new office at Butterworth Marine in the centre of Scarborough.
The new branch will open this summer, and is planning to introduce new local businesses and institutions to the organisation.
The company is aiming for growth in the regional maritime industry and to ‘galvanise’ the supply chain.
Iain Butterworth, owner of Butterworth Marine and a Team Humber Marine Alliance director, commented: “Team Humber will now be able to provide an enhanced service to existing and new members in North Yorkshire which is so rich in maritime, engineering and manufacturing heritage.
“The ports on this coast are small but highly significant due to their proximity to the North Sea offshore wind farms and recent investment, particularly in the engineering sector including in education and training.
“The new office at Belgrave Crescent is perfectly placed to help business access new opportunities.”
Andrew Oliver, also a Team Humber Marine Alliance director and a specialist in marine law and fisheries at Andrew Jackson Solicitors, added: “Whether a member is in shipping, fishing, engineering or already involved in the offshore wind sector, Team Humber can assist in skills, training and promotion.
“There is a lot of manufacturing and engineering expertise in the A64 corridor right through to Leeds, so Scarborough has great potential to be a ‘lay by’ for offshore wind developers.
“We have also developed strong links with the East Coast USA which is utilising our members’ skills at the start of its journey into offshore wind farm development and we are looking to help North Yorkshire businesses tap into this export potential.”
