Managing Director MMG Ocean

2005 Est by Martin McGuinness

With a lifelong passion for all things marine and is ideally located in the largest fishing port of Ireland this is where it all began. Having the opportunity to work closely with the people in the industry, listen to their needs, and find solutions to improve their operations. Providing a 24hr support service to the fishing fleet and seeing a fishing vessel being repaired and turned around in time to return to sea is one of the most rewarding parts of our job. Over the years MMG developed a strong reputation for a focus on quality while being responsive to the needs of the customers and the markets. This relentless focus on quality has enabled MMG to secure significant contracts in various sectors.

2018 – Patented Gangway Systems

Was the brainchild of Managing Director Martin McGuiness who from working on vessels most of his life saw the need for this piece of equipment to be modernised and a safer more efficient solution was born. After years of research and relentless perseverance, Martin’s vision came to life in 2018. Designing and manufacturing customised, flexible, automated, yet compact gangway solutions to increase safety on vessels and improve the overall operational efficiencies

2019 Innovation Award

The vessel-to-vessel model the first of its kind in the market was awarded the coveted Innovation award at Seawork’s Commercial Marine Exhibition UK in 2019. These patented systems are now in use all over the world, available in various models both manual and hydraulic, and still evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of the marine industry. In Martin’s own words, “Innovation has no end”
