Investment Announcements to Grow North East & Scotland Business
Demonstrating the Wallwork Group’s commitment to the staff of the recently acquired business of Consett based Metaltech, we are pleased to announce a name change to Wallwork Newcastle and highlight a raft of developments to grow the business.
Since Metaltech joined the Wallwork Group, last October, business has grown by 30 percent and we have expanded staff numbers by 15 percent to meet the increased demand.
We will be investing a minimum £250,000 this year. This will see a new building on the site to house a new surface treatment process. It will also allow for the increase in capacity of the electricity supply to the premises, which will help with future expansion. Work will proceed on these as quickly as planning permission allows.
The site covers an area of 2.5 acres, some of this space is to be used for a larger parking and loading area to help with extra deliveries. Importantly, this enables us to make the site a transport hub for the North of England and Southern Scotland. Some of our nationwide fleet of 50 commercial vehicles are already operating from the site and providing safe and reliable pick-up and delivery of customer orders in the region.
Site director, Luke Collins, commented, “I am sure with these investments we will continue to grow the business in the North East and Scotland from this location. The response from existing customers of the business has been fantastic. Many are keen to take advantage of the extra benefits and services that the site is able to offer now that it is part of the Wallwork Group,”
