Established in 2003 to represent the interests of the maritime and mercantile Sector across the Liverpool city region, Mersey Maritime creates the right conditions for business growth and help raise awareness of maritime industries.
The sea remains the lifeblood of modern world trade and for centuries the UK has been the home of all forms of maritime and mercantile business, supporting almost 1m jobs and directly supporting just over £40bn in business turnover.
Considered to be one of the best examples of a maritime membership organisation in Europe, we work with close to 1,300 businesses.We understand the key issues and their commonality among the maritime industry and we can act as an independent facilitator.
Mersey Maritime has consistently supported business growth, helping to build strong, local supply chains and considered to be one of the best examples of a maritime cluster across Europe.
We also deliver a unique business support programme to maritime sector specific SMEs as part of the New Markets 2 programme and have already helped to create more than 60 jobs in the past 12 months.
You are invited to join us, there’s strength in numbers Together we are stronger.
