Mech-Tool Engineering welcomed Stockton North’s MP, Alex Cunningham to their new Riverside facility located in Haverton Hill, Teesside.
This acquisition will create over 60 jobs for the Teesside area and contribute to the growing demand of renewable energy projects. MTE’s increased capacity is being used to deliver complex modular buildings and larger general fabrication works to for the growing renewable sector.
During his visit, Alex was welcomed by MTE Joint Managing Director Kevin Judson who provided a guided tour of the 8-acre site.
This included visiting MTE’s 4,500m2 manufacturing facility which is currently being utilised for a major renewables contract.
Stockton North MP, Alex Cunningham said: “Teesside is leading the way when it comes to supporting projects like renewable energy and I was grateful to Kevin and the team at MTE for showing me around their newly opened Tees Supply Base at Haverton Hill which has a critical role to play in this work.
It’s always great to see more skilled jobs being created in Stockton North and across Teesside, and it is vital that local people benefit from the opportunities created from new North Sea developments. I also believe that our local industries can play a bigger role in big ticket investment into renewable energy, which will boost job and training creation.
I’ll be looking forward to the future developments from MTE as they continue to grow and will always champion our local industries in Westminster and beyond.”
Kevin Judson, Joint MD said: “It was great to provide a tour of our new facility to Alex and show him the progress being made on this project. The eight modules currently in build will be completed here before being transported to another facility on the Tyne before final load-out to the Moray Firth.
MTE have ambitious plans for growth which is reinforced by our commitment to the Tees Valley area with our investment in this facility. This provides MTE with the ability to win larger projects and contribute to Renewable Energy Projects for UK waters in addition to supporting high quality jobs for the area.”
