Members of the business community are invited to attend a free networking event showcasing companies located and operating at Pembroke Port. The event is taking place on the 3rd November between 10am-2pm, located at Catalina House, adjacent to the Western Sunderland Hangar, one of the new office and workshop spaces developed as part of the Swansea Bay City Deal-backed Pembroke Dock Marine project.
Visitors to the event will get to meet representatives from a variety of over 20 supply chain businesses that operate at Pembroke Port and on the Milford Haven Waterway, including Williams Shipping, Mainstay Marine, Greenlink, Swansea Bay City Deal and more.
Guests are also encouraged to bring along a small gift such as pet food or advent calendars to help support local charities Greenacres Rescue and PATCH in the run up to Christmas.

Notes to Editors
The Port of Milford Haven is the UK’s top energy port and Wales’ busiest port handling around 20% of Britain’s seaborne trade in oil and gas. It is widely recognised in the industry as the energy capital of the UK.
The Port, along with the cluster of energy-related businesses along the Waterway, is a key driver of economic activity in Pembrokeshire, attracting inward investment and supporting over 4,000 jobs.
The Port of Milford Haven also owns and operates Pembroke Port and Milford Waterfront. Activities such as cargo handling, ferry operations, fish landing and cruise calls as well as a first class marina are spread across these two sites.
One of the most prominent on the West Coast, the Port is in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, the only Coastal National Park in Great Britain. It is marked as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and has many areas designated as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
The Port of Milford Haven is a trust port – an independent, commercially run organisation that has statutory responsibilities governed by its Acts, to maintain and improve navigation and the provision of Port and Harbour services and facilities. Additionally, the Port provides significant financial and in-kind support to a wide variety of local causes. All profits are retained within the business to fund these objectives.
