BUSINESS GROWTH AND EXPANSION LEADS TO JOBS
Posted: 19 July 2017
One of the largest industrial lettings in Hull for many years has brought with it the growth of a national company and the creation of over 30 new jobs.
Actavo, the multi-disciplinary engineering solutions company, has recently agreed to take a new lease of 120,000 sq ft on Freightliner Road, following a period of temporary occupation in Tickton.
Ed Chisholm, Partner at Scotts – who act for Actavo nationally – said “We’ve been looking at sites up and down the country over the last few years, expanding the Actavo portfiolio, which has included the acquisition of over 15 new sites and making sure that the business is able to serve its core customer base. The company had been occupying premises on a temporary basis but these were not adequate so a decision was made to relocate. The premises on Freightliner Road fits the bill.”Matthew Goff, Operations Director at Actavo | Building Solutions, said: “We have a great working relationship with Scotts and they undertake all our work across the UK. As we identified the need for the business to grow in East Yorkshire, we gave Ed a brief…and here we are.”
The growth of the business is also good news for the local jobs market as the company has created over 30 new posts. Mr Goff continued: “We anticipate the number of jobs to increase over the next 12 months. This is a dynamic industry and we are proud to be at the forefront of it.”Mr Chisholm concluded: “We had a number of challenges to overcome along the way to ensure that we provided a full property solution and met Actavo’s brief – and we were successful in that task.”
