A logistics firm with more than 50 years experience in the oil and gas sector has expanded into the region as it aims to serve the renewables market.
Peterson has moved into OrbisEnergy, in Lowestoft, and is seeking to grow both in the UK and in Europe from the Suffolk base.
Peterson regional director Jim McSporran said the firm had been working in the energy sector from its Great Yarmouth office and staff would be supporting both sites. He said: "OrbisEnergy will provide a platform for Peterson to increase its profile and service offering to a wider audience within the renewables industry. This will enable further business development both locally and regionally in the UK and north western Europe. In recent years, we have become more prominent in the offshore renewables sector, working for major clients operating in the local area from our Great Yarmouth base and wider North Sea region."
