UK: A&P Group Grows Its Business in North East

A&P Group is determined to continue to deliver growth for its business in the North East.

Against the background of a very competitive market place for its services, and to build on the ship repair, fabrication and conversion business, the Group recognises the potential opportunities and challenges in the offshore Oil and Gas sector, as well as for Renewable and Civil Nuclear fabrication work.

To meet these requirements the company is bringing the activities of the two North East yards, on the Tyne and Tees, into a single strong business unit focussing on the benefit of the synergies that exist between them, led by Chris McManus who has been appointed as Managing Director North East business.

The intent is to create the necessary focus, flexibility and competitive cost base to meet both existing and emerging market requirements. He has been appointed to drive these initiatives forward both within the business and externally in the region that will lead to growth and a secure future.

Chris, the former Managing Director at the Tees site, brings to the North East business a strong focus on the business development, to utilise fully the facilities of the yards in delivering solutions for the energy sector and heavy engineering opportunities, whilst not losing the prime focus on the ship repair and conversion markets.

As part of the restructuring and reorganisation of the A&P North East Business, Stewart Boak, Managing Director of A&P Tyne has left the company after 28 years of involvement in ship-repair on the River Tyne. Stewart has decided it is time to look for new challenges in his career. Commenting on his departure Stewart states that “he believed the changes now put in place would only further develop the services offered by A&P to its customers and allow the company to continue to support the Marine and Energy markets for the future. A&P have a strong management team and workforce and I wish them all well for the future. It has been an honour and a privilege to be Managing Director of A&P Tyne.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
