MESL Closure 2018

1st February 2018

As part of the ongoing review of the Gardline Group’s strategic direction, a decision has been made to close Marine Ecological Surveys Limited (MESL) in Bath as of the 28th February 2018.  While MESL has been an important part of the Gardline Group services since it joined the Group in 2007, the decision was made to consolidate environmental services in the Great Yarmouth office going forward.  All existing contracts with a short duration will be completed prior to the closure and all long-term clients have been informed of the closure of MESL.  

MESL was founded in 1975 and has operated in multiple sectors to deliver work of the highest quality and remains proud of the company-wide achievements to date. We would like to thank all of our clients, partners and collaborators with whom we have worked over the years for all of your continued support.

Should you have any queries regarding the closure of MESL, please call the Bath office on: (01225) 442211 or email: marine@mesltd.co. If you have any enquiries regarding any ongoing or future services that you may require, please contact the Gardline environmental team (environmental.uk@gardline.com) who would be very happy to assist you.
