Specialist consultants and naval architects to the commercial maritime sector, Amgram, has announced that it will be exhibiting at Seawork Asia in November.
Amgram Ltd is an established marine design and consultancy company and is now carrying out increasing amounts of work providing technical support to customers during the workboat procurement phase.
Operating worldwide for the last 27 years from the UK, Amgram has now opened a representative office in Bangkok to better develop markets and serve customers in the Middle and Far East.
Regarded as an expert in its field, Amgram specialises in workboat and commercial craft design and procurement of vessels ranging from 10 to 40 metres. Amgram works with craft constructed in GRP, steel and aluminium, however surprisingly the team also has experience in historic timber craft.
Founded by Managing Director Paul Graville in 1987, Amgram offers a host of technical support services and works in an advisory capacity with the likes of Government organizations as well as builders and yards worldwide, with vessel specification writing and procurement services a current topseller.
With an enviable list of client Builders including, Holyhead Marine Services, Baltic Workboats in Estonia, as a taste of current projects Amgram has recently been providing consultancy to the Welsh Government, developed the structural design and design support package for a 20m wavepiercing pilot boat as well as a 21m wind farm support vessel design built by Almaritec for Dong Energy.
Amgram opened its office in Thailand last year, which is run by Justin Stanley, therefore signing up for Seawork Asia was a logical move and the presence at the event will serve a number of key purposes.
Together with setting up on office in Asia, whilst reorganising, Amgram took the opportunity to set up remote-based staffing, with a series of bases and virtual offices around the world where they can respond rapidly to demand. As well as exhibiting in Shanghai, Amgram’s Managing Director, Paul Graville, will be speaking in the conference session at Seawork Asia, talking about trends in workboat and patrol boat design, discussing the changes that have happened and speculating on those that are to come, together with talking about smart ways to procure craft in what is a constantly developing market.
Paul comments, ”Seawork Asia is a great place to launch our Far East presence, but for us also the right time to highlight the shift in business, with an ever increasing amount of consultancy work being carried out by the company as project managers and customer representatives. We have been looking for another workboat show for years, to complement our presence at Seawork International in the UK.”
