NORTH-EAST company Ferguson Group is expanding operations in Australia.
The new yard and office buildings in Perth have been designed specifically to meet the needs of Ferguson Seacabs, Ferguson Modular and IceBlue Refrigeration Offshore, as demand for the group’s product ranges increase in the Asia-Pacific region.
Ferguson Seacabs offshore containers have already started arriving at the new yard.
Carol Pearce, general manager of Ferguson Seacabs in Australia, said: “Our existing premises have served us very well and enabled Ferguson Seacabs to establish itself as a leading provider of offshore containers to the oil and gas industry in Western Australia.
“However, the company has grown considerably and now that Ferguson Modular has a significant presence we simply need more space.”
Kintore-based Ferguson Group employs more than 155 people worldwide, including 10 in Australia.
