Close-to-market manufacturing capabilities

In the UK, our facilities have developed tight relationships with foundries over the years and can deliver bespoke mooring equipment including quality and safety control, audit reviews, and production schedule and coordination management.

In the USA, InterMoor opened its 24-acre facility in Morgan City, Louisiana, in January 2011 and expanded it to 34 acres in 2013. This ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001-certified site includes two fabrication buildings complete with engineering and design capabilities.

Manufacturing approach shortens lead times

The close relationship between InterMoor’s in-house engineering and fabrication departments facilitates a staged manufacturing approach. Unlike typical contract fabrication that requires the fabrication drawing package to be finalised prior to initiating fabrication, InterMoor’s staged process allows manufacturing to begin, as engineering specs come in, compressing delivery schedules and reducing costs. 

Quality assurance

The products and services offered by InterMoor are backed by our comprehensive ISO 9001:2015 Quality Assurance Programme.
