Providing specialist engineering services to AJ Marine in Antibes

AJ Marine’s operation in Antibes provides services to some of the world’s most expensive and sophisticated yachts and superyachts. The AJ Marine team offers urgent problem solving and routine maintenance anywhere, anytime. The company specialises in CAT and Kohler propulsion systems and prides itself on delivering a highly professional and responsive service to its customers.

The company approached Armada Engineering to provide consultancy and help implement a plan for a hose making facility and stock holding facility at their premises in the South of France.

AJ Marine wanted to be able to supply a good range of stainless fittings and hydraulic hose to meet the needs of the marine and industrial markets in the Antibes vicinity. They also required comprehensive training for their staff on the techniques for making hydraulic hoses.

Armada Engineering advised the company on the required machinery and stock. Following agreement, the machinery was freighted to them from the Armada head office in Falmouth to their Antibes base.

The Armada Engineering training team then met the AJ Marine team at their premises in Antibes and took them through set up and training, showing them all they needed to know to get the new operation up and running.

Since then, the relationship has continued to grow and Armada Engineering now provides ongoing support on technical enquiries regarding hose and fittings, approvals and technical specifications.

Armada Engineering’s Managing Director, Joff Collins, says:

“We were delighted to be able to work on such an important project for a prestigious client like AJ Marine. We were able to provide a total solution for the company that covered machinery, parts and the necessary training for their teams. This has enabled AJ Marine to expand and improve the service they can offer to their customer base and pursue new growth opportunities for their business.

“We hope that we can continue working with AJ Marine for many years to come.”
