GAC UK has opened a branch, its 19th, in the heart of Dundee harbour. Together with long-established branches at Aberdeen, Leith, Shetland, Invergordon, Orkney and Grangemouth, the new office enables GAC UK to 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, says: “The addition of a quayside facility in Dundee enables us to enhance our multiple service offerings. The strategic location is a distinct advantage for delivering services to the expanding oil, gas and renewables market across the Firth of Tay.”
Over the past 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, ship agency, quayside logistics, cargo consolidation, general freight, project forwarding, bunker fuels and terminal & marine services. According to Henry, it’s the countless combinations of services that enables GAC UK to deliver solutions tailored to the specific needs of each sector, customer and task.
The new office is located close to where Forth Ports is investing more than £10 million to construct a new quayside with heavy-lift capability. This will push the Port of Dundee to the forefront of the North Sea oil & gas decommissioning and offshore wind sectors. A port-based GAC office is therefore essential.
