A leading East Yorkshire manufacturer has taken possession of a new custom-built headquarters to enable the firm’s ambitious growth plans at a regional business park.
Tue, 17 Apr 2018
Timloc Building Products has been handed the keys at the new headquarters at Ozone Business Park in Howden.
The manufacturing firm, which is part of The Alumasc Group PLC, joins national businesses Warburtons, TNT, Image Data Group and DPD on the park, which is being brought forward by East Yorkshire property developer, the Horncastle Group PLC.
The new offices, which stands at 88,000sq ft, will enable the company to expand its manufacturing operations to achieve ambitious future growth plans.
The firm says the move provides better access to the motorway network than its former location in Rawcliffe Road, Goole, moving near to Junction 37 of the M62.
Michael Leaf, divisional managing director at Timloc, described talking over the property as a “milestone moment” in the history of the company.
He said: “Timloc has an excellent reputation with merchants for next day service and we are looking to capitalise on that by expanding our manufacturing and warehouse operations.
“To enable us to do that, we really needed to find modern premises that were fit for purpose, and what better way to do that then to have them built to our precise requirements.
“We recognised early on that Ozone Business Park fitted the bill perfectly because of the space available, it was close to the motorway, and crucially, it is close to our former base so moving wouldn’t impact on our workforce.
“Once we decided it was the right place for us, we worked extensively with developers, the Horncastle Group PLC, to design precisely the building that fitted our needs.
“Now that vision has become a reality and as a company, we couldn’t be more excited to take possession of it.”
Timloc undertook an extensive fit out process before completing the move. The building will be retained by the Horncastle Group PLC and leased to Timloc on a long-term basis.
Ian Hodges, managing director of the Horncastle Group PLC, said he wished the manufacturer every success in its new home.
“Timloc is a real East Yorkshire success story,” Mr Hodges said. “Their move to Ozone Business Park can only facilitate that further and enable them to grow.
“We’re delighted to welcome them to the park to join the other prestigious companies there, and to strengthen Ozone’s status as a local employment hub.
“We hope they’ll be very happy in their new home and wish them all the very best.“
