BELLINGAM MARINE CONSOLIDATES OPERATIONS IN EUROPE
September 14, 2010
Bellingham Marine announced recently its plans to consolidate its European operations and move its staff and capital equipment to the company’s existing facility just north of Barcelona.
“This strategic move not only lowers overheads by combining physical office and plant locations, but also creates synergies in our manufacturing and construction operations that will allow us to provide greater value to our customers,” explained Chris Lamont, General Manager for Bellingham Marine Europe.
The company previously performed a portion of its manufacturing activities in France and also staffed a separate sales office in Barcelona.
“The concentration of all production, sales, and administrative activities in a single location will generate numerous benefits by eliminating duplicated services and creating greater efficiency of personnel, operations, production and management,” added Everett Babbitt, President of Bellingham Marine. “It will also allow us to fulfill our commitment to provide better service and to become more competitive in the marketplace.”
This consolidation will not affect projects already under contract or any legal obligations. Bellingham Marine Europe may be contacted at 34 933 56 1229 or through its corporate office at +1 360 676 2800.
As the world’s leading marina design-build construction company, Bellingham Marine produces Unifloat® concrete floating dock systems, Unideck® metal frame floating dock systems and Unistack® dry stack systems for marinas worldwide.
