Salford Firm to Double its Office Space
An engineering firm in Salford will add 25,000 sq. ft. of workspace to its headquarters, doubling the amount of office space at its disposal and adding 25% to its manufacturing capacity according to a report published today on the business website thebusinessdesk.com.
According to the report ENER-G, who are specialists in renewable energy technologies, will spend around ┬ú2m on the extension and hope to open the new space this December. Once completed it will bring the office space capacity at the site to 24,000 sq. ft. and release workspace in a neighboring building that can be used to expand the firms manufacturing operations.
Until the office space is completed, around 120 staff at the existing site will reportedly relocate to offices in nearby Pendleton. Speaking on thebusinessdesk.com Derek Duffill, group managing director explained the reasons behind the office space expansion:
ΓÇ£Our innovative products and services are in demand across the globe ΓÇô fuelling powerful growth which is reflected in a rapid rise in turnover and the need to expand our main site in Salford. We employ more than 760 people worldwide in and have operating companies and joint ventures in 17 countries.ΓÇ¥
The expansion and take-up of office space in Salford has appeared regularly in the press during the last few months, with the relocation of institutions such as the BBC to the Salford Quays development attracting lots of attention.
