The company, which can trace its history back to 1842 where it began as Richard Cory & Sons in the Cardiff Docks, is looking optimistically to the future. The new 15,000 sq ft Felixstowe office is the result of recent growth, including the purchase of Freight Action Ltd at the end of last year, and demonstrates the company's commitment to its strategy of further expansion.

Alan Marsh said: “We are pleased that Cory Brothers continues to go from strength to strength. Cory Brothers represents an important component within the Braemar Shipping Services Group, which has developed marine services business divisions in parallel to ship broking, and these divisions now represent a growing percentage of the group's profitability.”
