New GAC office for Dundee
Logistics and marine services giant GAC UK has opened its 19th branch, in the heart of Scotland’s Dundee harbour.
Together with its long-established branches in Scotland at Aberdeen, Leith, Shetland, Invergordon, Orkney and Grangemouth, the new office enables GAC UK to better respond to the growing needs of its offshore and renewables client base in Scotland and beyond.
Adrian Henry, GAC UK’s General Manager – Oil, Gas & Renewables, said: “The addition of a quayside facility in the Port of Dundee to our already extensive suite of local offices throughout Scotland enables us to significantly enhance our multiple service offerings. The strategic location galvanises our local coverage while guaranteeing first-class service to the burgeoning oil, gas and renewables market across the Firth of Tay.”
Over the last 15 years GAC UK has accumulated extensive local supply chain knowledge in Dundee from its Leith and Aberdeen bases, gaining a strong reputation for delivering projects for a wide range of customers and delivering quality ship agency, quayside logistics, cargo consolidation, freight and project forwarding, bunker fuels and terminal & marine services. According to Henry, it’s the countless combinations of an unrivalled range of services that enables GAC UK to deliver integrated solutions tailored to the specific needs of each sector, customer and task.
The new office is located close to the site where Forth Ports is investing more than £10 million to construct a new quayside with industry-leading heavy-lift capability, in a bid to place the Port of Dundee at the forefront of the North Sea oil & gas decommissioning and offshore wind sectors. The resulting potential upsurge in project work means a port-based GAC office was deemed essential for the company to meet the needs of its clients.
