A South Warwickshire engineering firm has clinched a move to a new headquarters at the Holywell Business Park in Southam after sustained growth.
JML Engineering, provides a sub-contract tube manipulation service, is moving into a 6,300 sq ft unit.
The firm serves the automotive, retail and commercial sectors. One of its biggest contracts involves the firm providing floor level rails for supermarkets, including Tesco and Asda, which protect fridges and freezers from trolley damage.
After outgrowing its current 3,800 sq ft headquarters at the Kineton Road Industrial Estate in Southam, JML began searching for a larger premises. It settled on Holywell Business Park – a development by Albion Land – because of its quality and location.
Alistair Bailey, who set-up the firm ten years ago, said he always intended to remain in Southam, after first moving the business there in 1999.
He said: "We’ve been looking for a suitable property for a number of years now. We’ve wanted a larger unit in Southam because it’s central to the areas where our labour force travel from, and has ideal links to motorway networks.
"We are very content with the benefits which Southam offers, and were impressed with the quality of the units at Holywell and look forward to further expanding the business."
The move will result in new jobs, adding to the six current members of staff.
Clive Thompson, of joint agents Berry Morris, said: "Holywell Business Park is ensuring that businesses such as JML Engineering can expand within South Warwickshire, without having to consider leaving the area. This is vital for the local economy and for the town.
"The park is able to support both large and small businesses and the first phase has just been completed. The office space is from 1,500 to 10,000 sq ft and the next phase of the scheme, which developer Naus Albion is starting now, will focus on industrial units of over 10,000 sq ft.
"Businesses have been impressed with the park and there are only a few small units still available."
