UK: ABPmer Delivers Strong Performance in 2011
ABPmer, a leading UK marine environmental consultancy, has delivered a strong performance in 2011 despite the continued challenging economic climate and increasing market competition.
Much of the success has been underpinned by a sound business plan, clear marketing strategies to grow the customer base and targeted investment in research.
ABPmer’s portfolio of projects to support marine renewable energy has increased and widened, including projects through the supply chain for strategic planning, port expansion, project development and marine operations.
As leading UK marine environmental consultancy, ABPmer continue to achieve recognition as leading authority in habitat creation and managed realignment, ABPmer in 2011 completed the EIA for the Bristol Port Company’s compensation scheme at Steart and have new projects awarded from the Environment Agency.
ABPmer has achieved supplier status to the marine aggregate sector after demonstrating high standards in completing a MAREA and subsequently been awarded a number of marine licence EIAs.
Maritime services continue to develop, particularly in risk assessment services.
Bill Cooper, Managing Director said: “Our 2011 performance has been extremely pleasing, and we would like to thank all our clients for their continued support.
We have been able to maintain our position of offering high value technical services to a wide range of clients. This is despite seeing many areas of public and private sector spending having budget cuts. We have continued to invest in developing the range of our specialist services through our research programme. This investment has allowed us to provide important efficiencies to our studies and further increase our technical capability.”
