The new facility reflects a long term commitment to providing training and employment opportunities in the Teesside area. Over 180 employees are now operating out of the new facility, which consists of offices, storage, workshop space, training facilities and testing areas. On a recent corporate open day, over 100 customers were treated to a tour of the new facility, followed by a family open day which saw approximately 200 people visit.

In addition to the six-acre site, Mammoet has also invested heavily in new mobile cranes and specialist project equipment in the past three years, placing the company in the best possible position to meet the future developments and demands of the UK market.

“We believe there is significant potential in the UK market, particularly in the petrochemical, oil and gas, power, nuclear and infrastructure sectors,” said Matthew Gent, Mammoet UK managing director. “The new facility, combined with our longstanding experience in the UK, highly skilled team of professionals and extensive fleet means we are well equipped to capitalize on opportunities in the market.”
