John Good Group strengthens presence in Hull with sustainable new head office
John Good Group, a purpose-led group of businesses, has announced the construction of its new Head Office in Hull, set to be completed in early 2024. Founded in 1833, the sixth-generation family business has deep roots in Hull.
The new office aligns with the company’s FastForward plans, which focus on growth and expansion whilst maintaining a strong focus on People, Planet, and Performance. The construction of the Head Office utilises sustainable materials, reinforcing the company’s commitment to its Planet pillar.
Sustainability has been at the heart of the new office build, even down to the boardroom carpet being made from recycled fishing nets. The new office will also feature several chargers to encourage employees to choose electric cars and participate in car-sharing initiatives.
This eco-friendly infrastructure demonstrates the company’s dedication to reducing its environmental impact and a greener future. This aligns with the recent announcement that John Good Group is operationally carbon neutral, with a commitment to further reduction plans.
Designed to “inspire collaboration and innovation”, the new office space will serve as a hub for business activity and community engagement. It will provide a ‘state-of-the-art’ environment that not only motivates the current team but also attracts top talent to the John Good Group.
The new Head Office will be home to the John Good Group central services, Good Travel Management, and DAN Shipping with space to accommodate the company’s ongoing growth and success.
Adam Walsh, Chief Executive Officer of John Good Group, commented: “The move to Quarry House is an exciting one for the John Good Group and its people. One of our major ambitions is to be a company that offers its people the best opportunity for personal and professional development, and to help achieve that, you need a great working environment.
“We have a very capable and growing team at the John Good Group and they all deserve a first-in-class place to work. The new location will help us retain and attract talent and act as a hub for our businesses and customers.
“When you add a superb new office, into the beautiful grounds at the Hesslewood Business Park, you’ve really got the perfect combination and it will be a place we will proudly call home. Moving day can’t come soon enough!”
