May 2021 – Newsletter

We have had a busy few months at Stone Marine Shipcare, with many service and repair projects and our website launch to keep us occupied.

We have recently welcomed two new members to the office, Laura and Charlotte. Laura is our new Service Coordinator and Charlotte’s role focuses on Digital Media & Service Support.

We are really pleased to be making these announcements about our new personnel, reinforcing our commitment both to the local maritime sector and to investing in the next generation of talent.

This is also a firm statement about the strength of the talent being developed by our local Universities, both of our new additions graduated in Liverpool and their skills in Engineering & Digital Marketing are already making their mark.

Also this month, two of our team were promoted to managerial positions. Congratulations to our Service Support Manager Julie, and Gareth our Sales Manager.
