Following the reinstatement to operational use of the sidings at Orthios Groups Penrhos Site (The Former Anglesey Aluminium Works) - Armitt Rail, a Division of The Armitt Group, has signed an agreement with Orthios Group to Operate, promote and market the Penrhos site rail sidings which are conveniently located adjacent to Holyhead Port.

We are confident that this will lead to a boost in rail movements and revenues and secure the ongoing safe and successful operation of the assets on site.
Armitt Group already offers vessel agency, chartering services and bunker supplies as well as operating dedicated steel terminals across the UK from their head office in the North West with their most recent Rail Connected Steel Terminal (Armitt Multimodal Terminal South AMT-S) being constructed during 2017 situated at London Thamesport.
Allan Seedhouse, Managing Director at Armitt, said: “Following on closely from our agreement to operate Orthios’ Deep Water Jetty here in Holyhead we are delighted to be announcing that the adjacent Penrhos Rail Terminal is also ‘Open for Business’. We see this agreement as a great opportunity to open up a range of new supply chain corridor services for the port, and we look forward to continuing a very successful relationship with Orthios Group.

We are excited to work with Armitt, who will now actively promote and market the facilities and manage the operational aspects of the business. We are confident that this will lead to a boost in jetty vessel movements and revenues and secure the ongoing safe and successful operation of the jetty”
