Welcome to the James Troop Autumn 2015 e-newsletter. We hope you enjoy the read.
It’s certainly been a busy few months here at James Troop’s Runcorn base. Not only did we mark our 148th anniversary with a special reception as the Three Queens arrived on the River Mersey, we were also delighted to welcome a visit from the Government’s Minister for Defence Procurement, Philip Dunne MP. Mr Dunne enjoyed a tour of James Troop’s newly-improved headquarters after we secured a £2m deal to replace the generator sets on seven Royal Navy Mine Hunters.
We have also been hard at work on a string of other exciting new contracts. Among them was a deal to replace the engine on board the historic Kathleen & May – the last British-built wooden hull three-mast top sail schooner in operation. The Kathleen & May has become synonymous with Liverpool since finding a home at the Albert Dock.
Sticking with the maritime theme, James Troop also secured a deal to supply and install two Volvo Penta engines on board the Fulmar – one of Liverpool’s River Mersey pilot boats.
But to demonstrate the variety of our offering, James Troop also recently secured a six-figure deal with hydraulic firm Yuken to supply new engines for a hydraulic application.
News coverage secured in the media includes the Liverpool Echo, Runcorn & Widnes World, Insider Media and Machinery Market.
