Bellingham Marine plans to consolidate its European operations and move its staff and capital equipment to the company's facility near Barcelona, Spain.

"This strategic move not only lowers overheads by combining physical office and plant locations, but also creates synergies in our manufacturing and construction operations that will allow us to provide greater value to our customers," said Chris Lamont, general manager of Bellingham Marine Europe, in a statement.

The company previously did some of its manufacturing in France and staffed a separate sales office in Barcelona.

"The concentration of all production, sales and administrative activities in a single location will generate numerous benefits by eliminating duplicated services and creating greater efficiency of personnel, operations, production and management," said Everett Babbitt, president of Bellingham Marine, in a statement. "It will also allow us to fulfill our commitment to provide better service and to become more competitive in the marketplace."
