Certex U.K., a supplier to the global wind market, has expanded its renewables and lifting operations in the Humber, England, region by opening a new office and workshop in Hull.
The new facility is fundamental to the company’s plans to support the offshore wind energy market, for which Certex supplies equipment and inspection services.
The Hull facility, which will be Certex’s eighth U.K. location, will coordinate work undertaken to ensure all turbine installations and safety precautions adhere to U.K. regulations, the company says.
Certex plans to employ and train local labor for the new branch. In addition to providing support to Hull’s recently bolstered wind energy market, Certex will also provide same-day service on stocked specialist lifting products to its local customers.
“Our growth and acquisition program has begun to reap rewards, and we are delighted to be able to offer our current and new customers an increasing level of service from the geographic benefits of this new strategic location, ” says Kevin Smith, managing director of Certex U.K.
