During this period, ‘Teesport’ grew rapidly with a significant increase in the number of vessels visiting the river. This increase in traffic resulted in additional demand for a company that was able to carry out complex electrical & electronic repairs to visiting vessels.
During the 1970’s and early 1980’s MJR Controls became well established in the area and built up a strong customer base which included many international petro-chemical & manufacturing companies, shipping agents, owners and operators. The increasing complexity and integration of electrical & electronic control systems into all types of process equipment & machinery resulted in increasing demand for the range of services that we had to offer and rapid expansion followed.
In the last few years we have consolidated our position as a leading specialist electronic & electrical control system repair company and continued to expand our customer base and range of services.
In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s the increase in complexity of marine automation equipment and the experience gained by us over the past decade led to increasing numbers of requests from ship owners for MJR Controls to provide service cover worldwide. The next few years saw the company transform from providing mainly local industrial service to complete worldwide marine service coverage.
Operating from offices and workshops in the North East of England we are able to respond very quickly and flexibly to customer service requirements whether local, national or international. Over the past years we have built up a team of highly experienced field service personnel that are able to travel at very short notice to most locations. Field personnel are fully backed up by our modern, well equipped electronic service workshop facilities staffed by experienced service technicians and an efficient spares department.
Complementing our existing service & repair operations we now have in-house electronic, electrical & instrument design facilities and have successfully completed a number of diverse high profile turnkey design, build and installation projects for major clients. Staffed by professional engineers with wide ranging experience of the marine, process and petro-chemical industry we can manage the complete design life cycle from initial concept to the final stages of installation, commissioning and client hand over.
Over the last few years we have have seen increasing demand from customers who require a single multi-disciplined supplier to meet the majority of their service and supply requirements. In order to meet this demand and reinforce our commitment to customer service we have recently opened a mechanical engineering facility.
