Maritime Developments celebrates 15th anniversary with workshop hog roast

Maritime Developments made the most of the last rays of summer sunshine to thank its team for all its hard work over the past 15 years.

The company kicked off its anniversary celebrations by hosting a fun-filled afternoon at its Peterhead premises.

The event, which featured a hog roast, a prize raffle and Formula 1 and golf simulators, brought together staff from Aberdeen and Peterhead, allowing the directors to toast the company’s collective success.

George Mackintosh, Maritime Developments operations director, said: “We are very fortunate to have a fantastic team and it was great to see them all enjoying themselves. They thoroughly deserved it.

“It’s about the people who work for the company. Without them, what we do would not happen.

“We’ve built a great foundation, the business is growing and I look forward to seeing it continue to do so over the next 15 years.”

Derek Smith, chief executive and founder of the company, added: “It’s important that people get the time to speak to and interact with their colleagues outside work.

“Everyone had fun and I think it shows that we have got a great team. They are all an essential part of the company, and it’s thanks to them that we can deliver the final product.”
