Staffing and recruitment firm Mactech Inspections Limited has signed an exclusive deal with a South Korean marine solutions firm.

The Whitley Bay-based outfit has secured a deal for the Asian market with Seoul-based e-Marine, who are looking to enter the energy market with their monitoring and navigation systems.

e-Marine are majority owned by Hyundai and are keen to build their skill set in line with the South Korean government’s five-year plan.

Mactech, which has established a client base in South East Asia in recent times, will supply British and European-based personnel to the firm as a result.

Managing director Andrew McFarlane said: “Both sets of senior management recognise the global opportunities this partnership will bring to the two companies, it will allow for a significant increase in the exporting of products and service and develop further lines.

“The opportunities available through this were not just tied to South East Asia, it will be a formula that can be transferred and implement in other global areas.”
