Marine engineering firm expands in South Tyneside as business booms

Russell Herron, Managing Director of Tyne and Wear Marine Limited.

Tyne and Wear Marine Limited was founded in 2015 and today its kit and vessels are deployed around the world.

The company says it offers “full marine service,” from safety boats, commercial vessels, and custom fabrication and installation to full commercial diving services. The manufacturer is rapidly rolling out its kit and ships to the UK and beyond.

Bosses say that after experiencing ‘significant growth over the past seven years, the business has moved to the Jarrow Business Center manufacturing area, which was created to help businesses in the sector thrive’.

Russell Herron, managing director of Tyne and Wear Marine Limited, said that as the business grows the new base will allow the business to operate faster and more efficiently – with an ideal location near Tyne Port .

The company recently acquired the services of Bollard Load Test Ltd to expand its range of load testing capabilities, meaning it can now offer mooring bollard load testing in ports around the world.

Mr. Herron said, “Our move into the manufacturing area has come at the perfect time as we continue to expand our services with Bollard Load Test’s latest acquisition.

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

‘We would particularly like to thank the South Tyneside Council business investment team who ensured a smooth transition to our new base, supporting us with any questions and issues along the way.’

Manufacturing area open in the afternoon

Invest South Tyneside is hosting an open afternoon in the manufacturing area on April 29 from 1pm to 4pm for all interested businesses to chat with staff and view available manufacturing units.
