Company:Harbour Marine ServicesSecured £20,000 grant Created 2 new jobs
Harbour Marine Services in Southwold specialise in the construction, restoration, refit and repair of both traditional and modern boats.
Established in 1988, the company employs 14 craftsmen, a marine engineer and electrician and has on-shore storage facilities for 60 vessels.
Through working with the New Anglia Growth Hub, they have been awarded a grant of £20,000 from the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership’s Growing Business Fund (GBF) to extend their premises and create two new jobs.
Managing Director John Buckley said: “We were planning to build this in the next couple of years but due to a sharp increase in confirmed orders we had to make the decision to go ahead with the new build ahead of schedule. The grant has enabled us to build a new shed, increasing our undercover workshop capacity by a third.”
