    Fugro Subsea Services Limited expands operations in Milton Keynes

    Company News // July 12, 2013

    The Milton Keynes division of Fugro Subsea Services Limited (FSSL) in the UK has moved to larger premises in the Mill Square business park at Wolverton Mill.
     
    With a floor area of more than 550 square metres, the new offices can accommodate more than 30 staff and the move reflects FSSL’s ambitious plans to double the size of its Robotic Technologies business in the South-East over the coming years.

    The company recently recruited a test manager, Eleanor Lock, to manage the team that tests its subsea simulation products, and Michael Wood a graphics design specialist. Future growth plans include the recruitment of additional physicists and engineers.
     
    The new offices include a larger boardroom for company meetings and twin sound-proofed simulator rooms. One will provide a dedicated environment for software test and release management, while the other will host a permanent simulator for customer demonstrations.

    Commenting on the move, Dr Jason Tisdall, Robotic Technologies Business Line Manager said, “For some time now we have been spread across two office units. Bringing the whole team back together and providing a purpose-designed environment for management, development, testing and customer demonstrations will help grow the business, and provide a more pleasant and spacious environment in which to work.”
