Able Announces Chief for New Logistics Division

Mark Nixon picAble UK has announced another extension of its activities with the setting up of a new Logistics Division aimed at growing business for its fleet of heavy transport, lifting and associated equipment.

Heading the new division will be Middlesbrough-born Mark Nixon, who has a wealth of experience in the oil and gas, ports and shipping industries, in the UK and America, including working with leading companies such as Mammoet, Cory Brothers and Bhiel.

Says Mark “Able has recently acquired some of the best and most modern equipment in the world for its requirements at its sites on the Tees and the Humber—including, for example, six massive self-propelled modular transporters and the largest harbour crane in the UK, along with  rough terrain cranes.

“Obviously, with the exciting developments taking place at our larger ports, Able Seaton Port on the River Tees and Able Humber Port, this equipment is important to our operations.

“We are also offering contract services to clients in the UK and elsewhere in Europe.”

Added Able UK Executive Chairman Peter Stephenson “Developing a Logistics Division is a natural extension of our other activities such as our port facilities, marine decommissioning and offshore oil and gas rig upgrading and maintenance. It will increase the utilisation of our major assets and maintain our position as a market leader in providing multi user port facilities in the UK.

“We now have a growing range of heavy transport and lifting assets and we are delighted to have someone with Mark’s experience and enthusiasm to help ensure we maximise their potential both for our own requirements and other clients.”SPMT--MSF load-out picHarbour crane pic
