ORTHIOS Groups’ Penrhos rail sidings – open for business

ORTHIOS Groups’ Penrhos rail sidings – open for business

(Posted on 26/07/18)

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. The Port which operates 24 hours a day is a deep water, ‘lock-free’ facility and ideally located on the Irish Sea coast.

Lewis LeVasseur at Orthios group added “We are delighted to report that we have appointed Armitt Rail, also a division of The Armitt Group, to operate the rail assets on our Penrhos site. We are excited to work with Armitt, who will now actively promote and market the sidings and manage the operational aspects of the business. 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.

 

Orthios Group had earlier signed an agreement with Holyhead Shipping Limited, an Armitt group company, to promote and market the Orthios Jetty located at Holyhead Port. The jetty which operates 24 hours a day is a deep water, ‘lock-free’ facility and ideally located on the Irish Sea coast.

Lewis LeVasseur, COO at the Orthios Group said, “We are also pleased to report that we have appointed Holyhead Shipping Limited as agents for the jetty. 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”

Allan Seedhouse, Managing Director at Armitt, said: “We are excited to be delivering our comprehensive expertise and knowledge of the shipping industry to Holyhead. We see this agreement as a great opportunity to open new supply chain corridor services for the port, and we look forward to developing a very successful and lasting relationship with Orthios Group.”
