The company’s registered address is in Poole in Dorset and it has two principal trading addresses, one at Ringwood in Hampshire and the other at River Thames Wharf in Northfleet in Kent.

Commercial Marine & Piling Ltd (CMP) was founded in 1986, initially specialising purely in piling. Piling remains a core part of the business but the acquisition of Branford Civil & Marine Ltd in 1999 led to expansion and diversification into marine civil engineering and specialist marine piling. The company has said that it has the capacity to act as principal contractor for projects up to £7m, and as a specialist sub-contractor on larger projects.

It carries out contracts across the UK, with its River Thames Wharf site used as a base from which to mobilise and co-ordinate marine construction works along the River Thames.

The adminstrators are Benjamin Wiles and Geoffrey Bouchier of Duff & Phelps Ltd, based in the Shard in London.
