New clients Swire Oilfield Services didn't have to look too far for some news to interest local media.
It was just fortunate that Albert Coe was around at the time - more often he is in a far flung corner of the world.
For 25 years, Albert Coe of Swire Oilfield Services has carved a remarkable niche for himself in the energy world as helifuels service engineer.
When the Great Yarmouth office phone rings with requests for installing, inspecting or troubleshooting helicopter refuelling systems, callers usually just ask for Albert.
And often that means he is immediately on his way to Africa, the United States, Europe or simply North Sea platforms, regularly spending days on the move for just a few hours or even minutes work. A great story.
