Tratos has become executive members of Mersey Maritime and joining Bibby Line Group, KPMG, Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Peel Ports Group and other key players in the city’s maritime industry.
The innovation-led cabling company, which counts ports business as one of its core growth businesses, has manufacturing bases in the UK (Knowsley, Merseyside) and Italy, offices across the globe and customers worldwide.
Tratos develops and manufactures its cable locally and exports globally within this economically important sector. Mersey Maritime was set up in 2003 to represent the interests of the ports and maritime sector on Merseyside by helping to create the right conditions for business growth.
The not-for-profit organisation performs an important role as the public-private sector interface, working with hundreds of businesses whose activities span the 33 sub-sectors that make up the industry in the Liverpool City Region.
In 2015, the region’s Marine and Maritime Sector comprised some 1,250 businesses, making a combined contribution of £3.47bn, or 13% of, the regional GDP.
These statistics – and the some of the massive infrastructure developments currently nearing completion across Merseyside – projects such as Liverpool2, a new £400m deep water container terminal at the Port of Liverpool – ensure that the Maritime Sector is recognised as a key economic driver for the region.
Tratos produces advanced-performance across a range of sectors including cable and cable systems for ports and shipping.
