Staff at Krantech in Staveley, are joined by special guests, Coun Steve Brunt and his wife Jill, the Mayor and Mayoress of Chester, and Martin Wright from OneSubsea at the opening of their new facility in Staveley on Wednesday.

The guest list included Krantech’s loyal subsea oil and gas clients and new clients in the nuclear and energy sector. Also in attendance was the Chesterfield mayor and mayoress.

Formally opening the event at Colliery Close, Mel Myronko, CEO, spoke of the companies journey, the high points and the difficult times during which they embarked with SCR Regional Growth Fund to build a second site, placing them in pole position to take enquiries in for new market sectors as well as supporting their own in-house machining requirements.

Mel said: “It’s been hard work and one of the largest financial commitments of my whole working life, but I’m ecstatic to finally see the hard work and persistence pays off.”
