Granite City growth

Maritime Developments, provider of back-deck equipment for the subsea sector has tripled the size of its Aberdeen office.

Thecompany has moved from Spademill Lane in the west end to 1,500 sq ft premises on Dee Street in the city centre. The new four-floor office has its own entrance, reception area and car parking. The move will allow Maritime Developments to expand its team from six to 12 people in the city. In late 2012, Maritime Developments announced it had acquired a workshop, office and yard facility next to its 33,000 sq ft base at Wilson Street, Peterhead. The additional space is being used to house its rapidly-expanding electrical services division and its testing facilities.


The company is expanding its capability to deliver additional electrical and hydraulic services following the acquisition of the 17,500 sq ft site. This will give 13,500 sq ft of additional yard area and 4,000 sq ft for an electrical workshop facility. Derek Smith, chief executive officer of Maritime Developments, said: “The expansion of the Aberdeen office is the next step in the growth of MDL. We’re looking to add to the design and draughting team as well as increasing the number of office support roles. We’ve put the structure in place with our expansion in Aberdeen and Peterhead with a view to growing the
business internationally.”
