An independent ship repairer is riding a wave of prosperity in East Anglia's maritime sector with further investment in its regional operations.
Burgess Marine Lowestoft is currently working on projects in England and France – including the launch of a locally-made pontoon – with a combined worth of £2m. It follows the completion of a project for the UK Border Force in Malta.
Following a restructure it has successfully grown the business locally to support customers such as Boston Putford, Dover Harbour Board and numerous major contracts on the Thames.
The firm acquired the Small & Co shipyard on Commercial Road two years ago, within the ABP owned and operated Port of Lowestoft.
Paul Kirby, general manager of Burgess Marine Lowestoft, said: 'Having successfully restructured the business earlier this year it's great to see further growth locally and we are clearly benefiting by being part of the bigger Burgess Marine business.'
