Derbyshire manufacturing company eases pressure with office expansion

A Derbyshire manufacturer of hydraulics and pressure equipment has improved its facilities at Markham Vale with a major expansion.

Industrial Ancillaries manufactures cylinders, hydraulics and pressure equipment and has been based at Markham Vale for several years. In November of last year (2015), it received planning permission to build an additional 3600sq. ft. of office space, hiring Caddick Construction as the principal contractor.

Markham Vale, on the site of the former Seymour Colliery, is the only Enterprise Zone in the country covered by two Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), one of which is D2N2. D2N2 is a partnership of business, local authorities, and skills and training providers which works to promote economic growth and create jobs in Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.

Both D2N2 and the Sheffield City Region LEP are investing in development of the Markham Vale site. Like many other Enterprise Zones around the country it is former industrial, or previously under-developed, land made attractive for business relocation through advantages such as reduced business rates and Government-funded superfast broadband.

As well as increasing office space, Industrial Ancillaries headquarters now has a number of new facilities, including:

  • A brand new training academy for the company to focus on delivering its British Fluid Power Association (BFPA) accredited courses,
  • An improved Trade Counter opening in April 2016 to offer customers a welcoming and more widely-stocked store,
  • An improved workshop space,
  • New canteen and welfare areas for staff,
  • New and improved meeting room facilities,
  • Additional car parking space,
  • New specialist lift machines to provide improved storage facilities and increase product lines.

In line with Industrial Ancillaries efforts to be energy efficient, the office extension also has rainwater harvesting and solar panels to ensure that the building keeps up with its low CO2 emission rate.

D2N2 also covers the Derby and Nottingham Enterprise Zone which includes the Boots Enterprise Zone, Beeston Business Park and Nottingham Science Park in Nottinghamshire and Infinity Park in Derby.

Jamie Dennis, managing director at Industrial Ancillaries, said:

“The new ultra-modern facility undoubtedly brings more value to the company and an enhanced capability to provide more improved service to customers. Industrial Ancillaries looks forward to welcoming visitors to the new premises and continuing to build the business from strength to strength.”

David Ralph, D2N2 Chief Executive, added: “Enterprise Zone development is at the core of the D2N2 Strategic Economic Plan and key to delivering our strategy of creating 55,000 new private sector jobs in key industries, over ten years.”
