Award for div­ing com­pany

The Oban Times - - News -

A SMALL spe­cial­ist div­ing com­pany based on Mull has picked up an award from the Crown Es­tates af­ter only two years in busi­ness.

The com­pany, MDive, has grown rapidly since it started trad­ing in 2013.

With 15 staff, it pro­vides a whole range of diver ser­vices around the west coast of Scot­land.

With clients from across the aqua­cul­ture sec­tor, they also pro­vide sal­vage, retrieval, moor­ing in­spec­tion and re­pairs.

Con­tin­ued plans to in­vest in staff de­vel­op­ment and new equip­ment, will see real op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­pand their range of ser­vices and de­velop a wider range of clients.

Com­ment­ing on its suc­cess, the com­pany’s com­mer­cial di­rec­tor, Murdo Smith, said:

‘MDive has grown rapidly over the past few years and our con­tin­ued in­vest­ment in our staff and equip­ment has en­abled us to widen our ser­vices and en­sure that we meet the needs of our grow­ing client base.

‘ We recog­nise that, as a small com­pany work­ing from Mull, it is vi­tal we show com­mit­ment to our staff and that work­ing to­gether we can build a stronger more suc­cess­ful busi­ness over the com­ing years. This recog­ni­tion of our achieve­ment to date, and of our plans for the fu­ture, is tes­ta­ment to the hard work of all of those who have played their part in MDive over these past years.’

PRIZE: He­len De­war of MDive re­ceives the award from John Swin­ney, MSP
