A fabrication and mechanical engineering specialist is setting its sights on rapid expansion after securing a string of new contracts, including a £1m framework extension for Northumbrian Water. Deritend Group, which employs 14 people at its purpose-built workshop in Middlesbrough, has secured a deal that involves the design, fabrication, coating and site installation of load-bearing platforms and other structural fabrications.
The company is now looking to bounce back from the challenges of Covid-19 lockdowns by maximising recent investment from GE Renewables and the announcement of a Teesside Freeport, not to mention transferring its technical manufacturing expertise into new opportunities in nuclear, oil and gas, chemicals, and renewables. This strategy will involve investment in training and workshop equipment to allow the business to compete in highly compliant sectors, as well as the recruitment of a new lead administrator and two new apprentices.
