Vortec Marine has opened a new office and workshop facility at Swanwick Marina, adding to its existing locations at Gosport and Port Solent.

All three sites offer services from carpenters and riggers through to shipwrights, engineers and a project management team overseeing refit and maintenance work.

Director appointment

The company has also announced the appointment of Richard Burlingham as director who joins Vortec Marine following 11 years as general manager at Universal Marina.

"The new premises have enabled us to continue growing the business and expand the suite of services we can offer our customers,” said MD Ross Collingwood.

“Richard joining us is also an important move for the business. We welcome his knowledge base and management skills, having demonstrated what he can achieve at Universal Marina, taking the business to where it is now.”

Richard added: “I am delighted to join an already successful but rapidly expanding business and excited about the input I can give to the strategic growth of the company and the implementation of ideas I have.”
