Cable cleat manufacturer invests £500k in North Yorkshire HQ expansion
A Yorkshire cable cleat manufacturer has invested £0.5m in expanding its headquarters by 25 per cent.
Ellis Patents, based in Rillington, is adding a 10,000 sq ft warehouse to the headquarters, which is being constructed by local contractor S Marshall.
The new facility will be used primarily for assembly and storage, as well as expanding the company’s manufacturing capabilities.
Richard Shaw, managing director of Ellis Patents, commented: “We can claim the position of market leaders because we design, develop and manufacture products, which others simply try to emulate. Innovation has always been at the heart of the business, and through it we will continue to lead our sector forwards.”
“The extended manufacturing space will allow us to increase our range of manufacturing processes, bring even more new and unique products to market, and widen the range of markets we serve.”
Danny Macfarlane, operations director of Ellis Patents, added: “Finishing the construction phase just as the pandemic struck the UK provided us with a unique opportunity to completely reorganise our entire factory; which would have been impossible under normal working conditions.”
“The new space is more logically planned, which has improved work-flow and reduced down time; making us significantly more efficient.
“All of which means we are emerging as a business in great shape ready to make the most of the opportunities and challenges presented by the post-Covid world.”
