Boost for business park

AN international company specialising in support to the oil, gas, refining and petrochemical industries is the latest firm to re-locate to Wynyard Park.

Elliott Group has left premises in Stockton and moved into the business park’s Evolution complex.

From there, staff co-ordinate the work of a team of field service engineers.

The company which has its HQ in Pennsylvania, USA, designs, manufactures and services a range of turbo machinery.

Its team of Teesside-based engineers serves customers both locally and in Aberdeen, including high-profile companies such as BP, Shell, Nexen Oil, Marathon Oil and Talisman Energy.

The move to Wynyard Park is designed to boost the company’s brand in the North-East.

Company chiefs say they looked at other potential sites but none was able to cater so well for its needs.

Matt Johnson, development manager at the 700-acre site, said: “I am delighted to be able to welcome an international company of Elliott Group’s stature.

“It further demonstrates how a combination of high-quality premises and support services allied to our great location close to the A19 and A1 is enabling us to continue attracting new businesses despite the tough economic times.
