As part of Premier’s commitment to maintaining its £250,000 programme of investment at Endeavour Quay this year, two onsite commercial units have been refurbished, ready to welcome Vortec Marine Limited and Battrick Consultancy to the boatyard.
Vortec Marine Limited, currently offsite contractors will be taking up permanent residence in one of the units, in addition to its main office at Port Solent Marina.
Julian Weatherill, Projects and Logistics Manager at Vortec Marine Limited said: “We’re proud to be expanding our business further with the Premier Group, and we are delighted with the newly refurbished workshop facility within B-Shed at Endeavour Quay, which is now fully fitted-out with 15ft rigging bench, machine shop, metal and joinery working areas, project storage racks, compressor and air tools. We also welcome Jim Dobie to the Vortec team, who has taken over the management of Vortec Marine Training and will be developing the various courses we offer.”
An independent company specialising in maritime security, ammunition safety and ordnance management risk activities, including the removal of unexploded ordnances, Battrick Consultancy is now in a prime position to deliver and support clients engaged in the disposal of explosive remnants of war (ERW) on land, inshore and offshore.
Richard Battrik, Managing Director at Battrick Consultancy explains: “As a niche sector maritime security and ordnance management Consultancy, we are delighted to be working out of Premier’s specialist boatyard at the heart of the maritime community in Portsmouth Harbour. The facilities at Endeavour Quay are ideal for maintaining our continued support to the defence and security industry and we have been made to feel extremely welcome in our new office.”
Plans are also in place for the construction of two brand new units to facilitate expansion by existing tenants.
