Ultimate Group is expected to occupy the new building in the next few weeks, giving the business further capacity, increased flexibility and room for future growth, in addition to the company’s existing 120,000 sq ft of manufacturing, warehouse and office space at Europarc.
The overall investment project of which this transaction forms part will create up to 20 new jobs, adding to Ultimate Group’s existing workforce of 250.
Jeremy Hodson, MD-Ultimate Group, says, “The additional control we will have from insourcing more of our warehousing and the increased overall capacity this transaction gives us is an essential part of our organic growth plans for the future.
“Having the additional space will give us many more opportunities to be more flexible in our use of our overall Europarc footprint to facilitate better workflows and increased efficiency, resulting in being able to be even more agile and cost-effective throughout our operations.
“It’s extremely challenging to move operations around and locate new machinery when running 24/7, and this investment will definitely free up much-needed space to help us to achieve that, too.”
