Business is already brisk at the new Hull base for energy sector services company CLS Offshore, which was officially opened by city councillor Martin Mancey today.
The company have had several serious enquiries from major existing and potential clients since they moved in on January 2nd.
“We’ve had many messages of welcome along with potential business opportunities, which could be worth around £20m over the next five years,” said Scott McMillan, managing director of CLS Offshore.
They also plan to develop fabrication on an adjacent site, which will mirror their head office facility in Great Yarmouth.
More than 70 business, education and political guests visited the new premises during the open day and reception which was highlighted by councillor Mancey unveiling a commemorative plaque.
Twelve CLS staff were on hand to meet visitors and discuss the wide and varied services of CLS within the oil, gas, marine and renewable energy sectors.
