Hutton’s in the UK is developing its work in the renewable energy sector and has boosted its supply chain by merging with Norfolk, UK-based Harbour Chandlery Marine Services, a specialist supplier of commercial services to the offshore industry.

The company will retain its name but be recognised as a division of Hutton’s, the UK’s
leading ship supplier.

Harbour Chandlery Marine Services (HCMS) supplies many of the companies involved in
the offshore renewables market and has a customer base including Dong Energy, Eon, Warwick Energy, Scira and Statoil.

As a new division of Hutton’s, the company will be managed by Rob Ludlam who brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise gained from many years supplying the offshore
renewable energy sector.

HCMS has been heavily involved in the support of vessels working on Sherringham
Shoal, London Array, Walney and the Lincs Offshore Wind Farm, supplying a full range of provisions, technical , industrial and medical stores.

Hutton’s Managing Director Alex Taylor said: “This merger makes perfect business sense for us. HCMS shares our commitment to providing a quality supply service 24 hours a day, seven days a week and 365 days a year.”

Rob Ludlam said: “These are exciting times for us. Joining the number one ship supplier in the UK will open new supply opportunities for our joint venture and having the extensive Hutton’s branch network behind us will ensure a rapid delivery response for our customers.”
