Hutton’s, the UK’s leading ship supplier, has responded to increased demand from the Offshore Oil and Gas industry by opening a new East Coast outlet.

The new office in Great Yarmouth offers Hutton’s full range of provisions and technical stores and will be responsible for the area from King’s Lynn to Harwich including the key ports Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft.

Now open for business, the Hutton’s office is located on the docks at Great Yarmouth and is manned by Mark Norton in the role of Territory Sales Representative. Mark is well known in the Great Yarmouth area and brings with him a wealth of local knowledge as well extensive knowledge of the offshore market.

Jon Hickey, Hutton’s Sales Manager, says: “Great Yarmouth has strong links to the offshore industry and offshore wind farms. In the past three months business has increased with offshore support vessels berthing in Great Yarmouth for re-supply. We feel opening a local office will enable us to respond more quickly and effectively to this demand.”

Privately owned and operated since May 2007, the port at Great Yarmouth – known as EastPort UK – is a modern, multi-purpose facility integrating a new deep-water outer harbour with the well established river port.

Strategically located in the Southern North Sea the port has become a centre of excellence in the offshore energy sector and with the introduction of a new deep-water facility, the port can now facilitate larger offshore vessels. The port is the closest deep-water facility to Northern Europe and provides a gateway to and from Europe and beyond.
