Modular construction company, Integra Buildings has revealed plans for a major expansion of its East Yorkshire base
Integra is in the final stages of acquiring six acres of land next to its site in Paull, east of Hull, and has submitted plans to East Riding of Yorkshire Council to incorporate this area into its operations.
The development of the land will increase the Integra site footprint to over 14 acres and create room to meet the modular construction company’s current and future needs.
The expansion will create 20 new jobs, secure Integra’s future on the site as one of the leading employers in the Holderness area and is key to the management’s ambitions to double revenues to £60m within three years.
The land has been earmarked for a new production facility as well as storage, loading and dispatch areas.
‘Bursting at the seams’
Managing director Gary Parker, said: “We need more room to deliver our current projects, service our very healthy order book and continue our growth. We’re already bursting at the seams much of the time.
“It’s also absolutely essential to maintain operations on a single site, for operational efficiency and to maintain our competitiveness. The expansion of our current site, where we have already invested millions in facilities, is the perfect solution.
“This is great news for our employees and our supply chain, the vast majority of which is within East Yorkshire, as well as creating 20 new skilled and semi-skilled production jobs for local people.”
Pending planning permission, Integra intends to begin work integrating the land into its site in six months.
Parker, added: “This latest major investment is critical to future-proofin0g the business and to our ambitions to accelerate our growth.
“Our ambition is to double our turnover to become a £60m business within the next three years and having the space to grow is vital to realising that potential.
“This is a landmark moment in the development of the company and we’re very excited by the opportunity to move to the next level.”
