Marine engineering company Atlantic Pacific Marine (APM) informs it has opened a new site in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. to meet an increasing workload and customer base following another year of success and growth.
APM is headquartered in Cardiff, U.K., but operates globally, in the past year completing dry dock projects and refits in the Grand Bahamas, Australia, Germany, the U.K, Singapore, Italy and Miami for clients including Carnival Australia, Carnival UK, Princess Cruises, P&O, Wärtsilä, Crystal Cruises and Disney Cruise Line.
The new Fort Lauderdale site is in the harbor itself and includes fully staffed offices and 6,000 square feet of fabrication workshop. The company has been formally set up with the U.S. Authorities and is called Atlantic Pacific Miami.
Senior APM project manager Mark Meredith will head the new operation, bringing to the role 27 years of industry experience. His most recent projects in 2015 have seen him manage refits on the Caribbean Princess, the Crown Princess and the Island Princess.
