A bigger office in Connecticut. A new office in Singapore. And the beginnings of an interest in a new class of tanker.

It has been a active period of development for commercial manager and pools operator Penfield Marine as it continues a strategy of controlled growth.

In Connecticut, Penfield has moved into a 6,000-square-foot (557-square-metre) floor after outgrowing its old 2,600-square-foot quarters just down the street in the Southport section of Fairfield. The move reflects Penfield’s expansion to 22 members of staff in Connecticut, from 18 last December, and plans for further growth.
