A Falmouth-based marine hydraulics specialist continues to shrug off the effects of the credit crunch with new products and services, sales growth and continued investment in the business.
Despite the doom and gloom in some parts of the shipping industry, Armada Marine Hydraulics has seen year on year growth.
Investment in the company’s factory and administration has included a new state of the art hydraulic hose making and testing bay. IT has also had an overhaul, with new web-based systems to allow engineers remote access to the company’s databases.
In parallel with these hardware investments, MD Martin Doney has also recruited four new members of staff to improve levels of design, technical sales support and engineering capacity.
The company has also engaged commercial marine marketing specialists Quantum Marine Marketing Ltd to boost its marketing and business development capacity.
“The overall effect,” said Doney, “has been to absolutely reinvigorate the company. We now have the team I have been looking for, the facilities we have always wanted and the support systems we need in order to give our customers even better service.”
