Bosses at Norfolk-based Fendercare have secured a six-figure deal to supply fenders to Great Yarmouth outer harbour.
The firm has won a deal to supply 17 Yokohama pneumatic fenders to port operator Eastport UK after beating off international competition.
Sonia Wells, Fendercare Marine sales manager, said: “We have previously supplied Eastport UK with a number of fenders and this contract also shows the commitment that Fendercare Marine has to the local supply chain and local economy.”
Jamie Frater, Eastport UK chief executive, said: “the new Yokohama fenders are a proven product, and provide us with greater flexibility to cater for a range of different sized vessels, further enhancing the attractiveness and suitability of the Outer Harbour to our current and future customers.”
Business secretary Vince Cable has been issued an ultimatum by two Norfolk MPs to back Caterham Cars proposed move to Norfolk – or risk losing the iconic brand to France.
