Having positioned themselves as a specialist supplier to the marine and composite industries Direct Tool Company (better known as DTC) are thrilled to have been selected for the business directory of the momentous Greenport project in Hull.
Green Port’s inspiring renewable energy project hardly needs an introduction, with over £300M invested from Siemens alone for a wind turbine assembly and rotor blade manufacturing & service facility. The initiative has been publicised in world news as the UK’s brightest offshore renewable energy scheme.
DTC are rapidly growing their tooling and consumable services to a variety of composite part manufacturing facilities in the renewable energy sector. From working with a wide variety of turbine blade production engineering centres across Europe their product range has diversified significantly to suit these precision engineering operations.
“I recently joined DTC to better serve our growing customer base in the North East and am feeling excited to meet with several businesses involved in this fantastic scheme at Green Port. We’re well positioned for serving more renewable energy sectors, as our reputation grows as the tooling and consumable specialists for composite material finishing processes.” Explained Matthew Nelson, Technical Sales Manager of Direct Tool Company.
DTC will be attending the Team Humber Marine Alliance’s Offshore Wind Connections conference and exhibition at Bridlington Spa on the 3rd and 4th of May with views to better understand industry requirements.

Fortunately, our dedicated projects team are often the first to hear about such developments and keep the rest of the company informed” explained Tim Wakeford, Managing Director of Direct Tool Company.
