Hutton’s Group, the international ship supply specialist, is expanding northwards. The company has this week opened a new branch office in Lerwick, capital of the Shetland Isles – the northernmost part of Britain some 170km (110 miles) north east of the Scottish mainland.
Shetland is a developing centre for the offshore oil and gas industry, located at the crossroads of the North Sea and the north east Atlantic Ocean. Lerwick port is strategically well-placed to enable Hutton’s to provide ship supply services to operators in both areas.
Hutton’s has a great deal of expertise in the offshore oil and gas sectors, particularly from its busy branch at Aberdeen. Now the group is bringing this professionalism to Shetland in response to requests from existing and new customers who want to benefit from Hutton’s high level of service in this remote location.
Hutton’s Lerwick branch will be supported by the group’s Aberdeen site via a daily ferry service. The branch will provide a range of ship supply services in Shetland and the Orkney Islands including: provisions, technical or industrial products and medical, as well as logistic & agency services.
Laurence Smith, Hutton’s sales representative who will head the Lerwick branch, brings to his role many years’ experience working within Shetland’s ship agency and oil and gas logistics sectors. Laurence’s customer -focused approach sits well with Hutton’s pledge to provide a reliable ship supply service in this developing maritime sector.
Alex Taylor, Hutton’s Managing Director, said: “This is an important move for the Hutton’s Group. We are growing fast within this sector of ship supply and believe opening this new branch in this developing centre for the oil and gas industry will help us to meet increasing national and international demand for our quality services.”
