In March of this year Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal, officially opened a new subsea centre of excellence for Divex and James Fisher Defence (JFD). This facility is to be the manufacturing hub for future James Fisher and Sons plc subsea engineering projects.
The 30,000 square foot facility in Inchinnan, Glasgow will be the new headquarters of JFD and provides the scale and infrastructure to enable them and sister-company Divex to work closely together in the delivery of large scale projects. This will also enable both companies to broaden their products and services in the saturation diving and submarine escape, rescue and abandonment markets.
Doug Godsman, Joint MD of Divex stated: “The shared facility at Inchinnan will allow us to satisfy growing global demand for our saturation diving systems whilst maintaining the high quality for which Divex is renowned.”
