New office locations strategically developed across the UK are part of bold new plans being brought forward by Blackrow Engineering as it looks to further build its customer base.

The Grimsby- headquartered firm wants to capitalise on the capability of the 14,000sqm ft of workshops on South Humberside Industrial Estate, having transformed what was the former KP factory into high-volume multi-discipline facility.

Sheet metal, fabrication, electrical engineering, machining and laser cutting disciplines are all in evidence, serving food, power, petrochemical and other process industries.

Chris Marfleet, sales director and co-owner, said: “We will be opening up regional offices. It is at strategy stage at the moment, and they will be sales locations. We have a big customer base, which we are continually looking to grow.”

The company is looking at Glasgow, London and the Midlands, and it follows initial success with a Scottish-based project team.

“Going into January and February, we have strong orders. A lot of installation work is taking place in Scotland, Manchester and Leicester."

Blackrow is also playing a key role with a major retail bakery as it undergoes a significant restructure, with the movement of equipment and building of lines all in hand.

Work overseas in Italy and Finland is also highlighted.
