Lingfield Point is proud to provide creative office space to some of the most significant companies in the North East. Our most recent customer to join our ever-increasing list of companies is AMEC – the international engineering and project management company – who enjoys its 30th birthday this year.
To celebrate this milestone, AMEC Chief Executive Samir Brikho was joined at the London Stock Exchange by 30 AMEC employees, all of whom have been with the company since its formation. The group included Kevin Catterick – senior project manager – who took some of the responsibility for the 500+ staff move from Yarm Road offices to the prestigious Meadow space at Lingfield Point.
Celebrating this achievement follows on from news of a recruitment drive to employ an additional 40 skilled staff as part of a strategy to make its North East base at Lingfield Point. Lingfield Point is set to become a centre of global engineering operations for AMEC.
Nicola Mason, operations director for AMEC in Darlington said: This is really good news for Darlington. The skills and experience of our workforce has helped us beat some very tough competition to win a number of new contracts and we’re delighted to bring new jobs to the town.
We have settled in well at Lingfield Point – one of the key reasons for moving here was that we would have the space to expand. The legacy of the Tees Valley engineering and chemical process industries means that this area has a lot of people with the type of skills we need so we don’t expect to have any problems finding the high calibre of staff we need.
Our colleagues based within AMEC should feel immensely proud of their part in this global success story – we’re proud to be associated with them and share in their achievements.
Well done AMEC from all at Lingfield Point and we wish them well and continued development over the next 30 years!
