Malin Marine Consultants (MMC), part of the Glasgow-based engineering company, Malin Group, is expanding company operations at Westway Park in Renfrew. The company provides expertise in heavy lift projects, offshore equipment and general marine support across a broad range of sectors and will initially employ seven people from the Renfrew base.

The deal, which comes hard on the heels of the recent dock launch at Westway, sees Malin agree to terms on an industrial unit at Block A, which is located close to the park entrance.

The unit extends to 12,500 sqft and includes an office suite, along with surfaced yard and car parking facilities. It also offers 10-tonne craneage facilities and clear access to the load out dock. The lease term is six-years.

Speaking on behalf of the parks’ owner, Hugh Canham from Moorfield Group said: “This deal is further great news for the park. Our confidence in the quality product offering, as well as our investment in the new dock facility has been rewarded with this letting. Malin Marine is a high calibre occupier – we welcome them to Westway and look forward to the business prospering and growing at the park.”

“Our company is now in great shape to exploit significant market opportunities this year and beyond” said managing director John MacSween. “Malin Group has enjoyed steady growth and the new facility will allow us to expand our in-house capability going forward. We were attracted by the excellent facilities at Westway, particularly the access to cranage within our unit, which enables us now to handle fabrication in-house.”

Pete Harding of Bilfinger GVA added: “Malin carried out extensive market research before deciding on a Westway location. The company was well aware of the many benefits of the estate, including excellent location, flexible lease terms and good quality space, plus the new dock facility.
“The park provides the ideal environment for growing companies like Malin. It continues to prove extremely attractive to a range of occupiers and we are very pleased by the continuing high levels of interest.”
