ENGFIRM to relocate to larger premesis

ENGFIRM has outlined its plans to relocate to larger production facilities in Gateshead, as part of its scale up plan.

The company will move to the new premises, close to its existing factory in Team Valley, in the summer, generating additional capacity for the precision engineering and assembly of components used in severe duty and high integrity applications.

At 45,000 sq ft, ENGFIRM’s new unit will be three times larger than where it currently manufactures components for industries such as power generation, food production, offshore energy, defence and electric vehicles.

The move will also create jobs to expand the 60-strong team.

UK Land Estates is developing the facility, which will be part powered by Solar PV and include electric vehicle charging points and air source heat.

The site forms part of a pipeline of speculative industrial sites that UK Land Estates is developing in response to increasing demand from commercial property occupiers.

ENGFIRM’s scale-up strategy began with a management buyout at the start of 2021 and includes a significant investment from Ignite Growth.

“We have maximised every square metre of our existing facility to house the latest in precision CNC capabilities and a very talented, experienced workforce. Moving to new premises will give us the space we need for the next stage of our growth and scale our operations to serve an expanding customer base.”

He added: “Working alongside Ignite Growth we have a clear vision for the business and have ambitions to contribute to the consolidation of the precision engineering sector, be that through organic growth that we’ll achieve through our new factory, or via potential acquisitions.”

“At UK Land Estates, we strive to work closely with our tenants to help tailor make units to suit their business needs and to help them expand.”
