Proserv Invests in New Facility in Great Yarmouth

Proserv has invested in a new purpose built technology centre for subsea controls and communications in Great Yarmouth.

The move will see around 190 employees consolidate from two sites in the area into the new 65,000 sq ft Beacon Park site in Gorleston-on-Sea which will feature modern office, manufacturing and yard space and provides the flexibility to add a further 20,000 sq ft of workshop capacity, the company said.

Construction will start next month with the building expected to be completed during March 2018.

David Lamont, Proserv CEO, said: “This is great news for the whole of Proserv but especially the team in Great Yarmouth. Investing in this new facility firmly underlines our long-term commitment to Great Yarmouth and plans for growth in the area.”

Beacon Park is part of the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft Enterprise Zone, which focuses on attracting and supporting energy-related businesses within the East of England.

Great Yarmouth Borough Council has invested £4.5m in the base, which the council is also developing, with £1.5m coming from New Anglia LEP’s Growing Places Fund. Proserv will fund the remaining sum.
