Mon, 11 January 2016
UK-based ship repairer Burgess Marine has partnered with Kent-based Mechanica Utilities to maximise the use of its Dover footprint and share the company’s workshop and fabrication facilities, nationally, across all nine of its UK locations.
Mechanica Utilities is a mechanical and electrical repair company which specialises in site work and workshop repairs on all mechanical and electrical equipment, mainly within the Water Utility Market.
Daniel Gunner, the newly appointed Engineering Director of Mechanica Utilities, added: “Joining James at Mechanica Utilities during these early stages of growth is truly exciting and the partnership with Burgess Marine compliments both companies’ activities.
“The technical capabilities that Mechanica Utilities can now offer is phenomenal and we look forward to a very successful future”.
Mechanica will share Burgess Marine’s facilities at its UK locations in Dover, Lowestoft, Portsmouth, Portchester, Southampton, Marchwood, Poole, Avonmouth, and Devonport.
Nicholas Warren, the Managing Director of Burgess Marine, said: “James has built an excellent team and a superb business.
“It’s genuinely our pleasure to support both the expansion and commercial advancement of Mechanica Utilities. Our footprint here in Dover offers a 1,400 sq ft machine shop, over 12,000 sq ft of fabrication space and a 1,000 sq ft mechanical fitting workshop. We’ve also five tonne gantry cranes and over 10,000 sq ft of exterior space here too.”
“We genuinely believe this shared footprint can work for us both and we are looking forward to expanding our endeavours into both the Southampton and Portsmouth areas.”
