Tyne and Wear Marine expands into larger “bespoke” South Tyneside premises following acquisition

An innovative marine engineering company has relocated to a larger premises in South Tyneside to meet growing demand for its services, following the acquisition of another company to expand its range of capabilities.

Established in 2015, Tyne and Wear Marine Limited offers a complete marine service, from safety boats, commercial vessels and custom fabrication and installation to full commercial diving services. The manufacturer rapidly deploys its kit and vessels in the UK and beyond.

Due to significant growth over the last seven years, Tyne and Wear Marine has recently relocated to the Manufacturing Zone at Jarrow Business Centre, a bespoke space created for businesses to thrive in the manufacturing sector, amongst a burgeoning offshore cluster.

As the business expands, the new base will allow the business to operate faster and more efficiently, ideally located by the port of the River Tyne.

As part of its growth plans, Tyne and Wear Marine recently acquired the services of Bollard Load Test Ltd to further expand its range of load testing capabilities, meaning it can now offer load testing of mooring bollards in ports worldwide.

Russell Herron, managing director of Tyne and Wear Marine Limited, said: “Our move to the Manufacturing Zone has come at the perfect time as we continue to expand our services with the latest acquisition of Bollard Load Test.

“In a job like this no two days are the same and we could be called on a project anywhere in the UK at any time, so it’s vital that we can act fast and efficiently, and our new base will allow us to do just that. As we expand our offering we’re hoping to recruit over the next 12 months and we’re perfectly located for local suppliers, which is an added bonus.

“We want to say special thanks to the Business Investment Team at South Tyneside Council who have enabled a smooth transition into our new base, supporting us with any queries and problems along the way.”
