Grimsby-based engineering firm opens new office in Cheshire
Grimsby-based multi-discipline engineering firm, Technica, has opened a new office in Congleton as part of its UK growth and recruitment strategy.
The company’s second office is located within the Somerford Business Court in Congleton, a former dairy farm and barns that have been converted into luxury offices.
Commenting on the new office launch, Richard Law, business development director at Technica, said:
“Our head office in Grimsby is a fantastic site but it’s not so easily accessible for many of our clients and suppliers over in the West and Midlands.
“At the same time, the business is growing rapidly and we require additional presence and resources to attract and recruit good engineers from other areas throughout the UK to meet operational demand.
“The new Congleton office is located just 10 minutes from the M6 so represents the ideal opportunity for our customers, who may be travelling up and down the country, to pop in and meet with us or use the office as a base to work from.”
“Featuring a large meeting room with video conferencing facilities and desk space for additional design and project engineers, the premises will enable us to take on new people and give us greater access to our existing clients as well as approaching new prospects.
“We will be within practical commuting distance of Manchester, Liverpool, Stoke and Birmingham which will open up both fresh business development opportunities and a new pool of regional engineering talent for us to tap into.”
Concludes John Davison, managing director of Technica:
“It has always been our intention to open additional Technica offices in other parts of the UK and the chance to take space at Somerford Business Court has arisen at an opportune time. Having an office in Cheshire will further enhance our overall capacity and support our ambitious plans for sustained expansion and job creation over the next few years.”
