Armada Engineering opens at MB92


U.K.-based Armada Engineering has opened a workshop at MB92 Barcelona shipyard. Established in 1989, Armada offers service in hydraulic systems, including design, manufacture, installation, testing and maintenance. The company designs and builds its own equipment at a purpose-built 10,000-square-foot facility, and many of its systems are bespoke solutions, designed to meet specific customer challenges, according to a company press release. 

“There is huge potential for our business to expand its superyacht customer base across Europe and further afield,” stated Joff Collins, managing director of Armada Engineering. “Our new base in Barcelona will enable us to grow this area of our business significantly and we are really looking forward to working as part of the team at MB92.”

An initial contingent of four staff from Falmouth is now based in Barcelona, with more staff yet to be recruited, according to the company. The new workshop is the latest development for Armada following a management buyout in 2017 and brand relaunch in September.

MB92 Barcelona, located in the port of Barcelona, provides service, refit, repair and maintenance work each year to more than 100 superyachts from 115 feet (35m) to 656 feet (200m).
