New UK Training Center to Create Jobs
Training specialist Stream Marine Training confirmed its commitment to establish a new maritime and offshore training center in Wirral, UK, by signing an agreement with Wirral Council that will see them invest up to $1.9 million (GBP 1.5 million) in new facilities.
The opening of the new development within the Mersey Waters Enterprise Zone is set to create a number of new jobs, according to trade representative body Mersey Maritime.
“Stream Marine’s decision to set up its first base outside of Scotland in Wirral is a mark of confidence in the region and the opportunities available to ambitious business owners looking to expand,” Chris Shirling-Rooke, CEO of Mersey Maritime, said in an organization statement.
“This type of investment is perfectly aligned with Mersey Maritime’s vision for the cluster, promoting growth, innovation and new jobs,” he added.
George Davies, deputy leader of Wirral Council, said businesses such as Stream Marine Training are exactly the type of company the council is trying to attract to Wirral - fast growing, ambitious and able to invest in the area and create jobs.
“On behalf of the council I pledge to do all we can to continue to support them,” Davies said in a council statement.
