Allam Marine's new base will help double capacity
AN EAST Yorkshire company is gearing up for further growth after receiving the keys to its state-of-the-art new headquarters.
The £4.5 million Allam Marine complex at Melton West Business Park enables the East Yorkshire generator firm to double its generator manufacturing capacity and increase warehousing and distribution space by a third.
Owner Assem Allam said: "We have watched the building get closer to completion over recent months and have been very excited about moving in. Finally that day has come.
"The new headquarters means we will have the space we need to continue our strategy of growth without having to look for premises elsewhere."

The 65,000sq ft premises, which add to the manufacturer's existing 190,000sq ft base, have been created by Hull property company Wykeland Group Ltd.
Receiving the keys to the new complex, Mr Allam said: "The building looks fantastic and is very befitting of Allam Marine's status of being the UK's largest independent manufacturers of generating sets and one of the biggest in Europe.
"It will showcase to the many foreign visitors we receive the quality of commercial developments being created right here in East Yorkshire."
Dominic Gibbons, managing director of Wykeland Group, said the Allam Marine building was an example of what could be achieved by creative approaches to design and construction methods.
He said: "It is a landmark building on what we believe is East Yorkshire's most desirable commercial development.
"Finally being able to hand the keys to Assem represents another significant step forward in the growth of the Melton West Business Park."
Work first started at Melton West in early 2008.
Since then, Wykeland Group has developed more than 550,000sqft of premium commercial space at the site.
Today, Melton West is home to a number of prominent firms, including Heron Foods, House of Townend and shower manufacturer Kohler Mira.
Hull builder Hall Construction Ltd was appointed by Wykeland as contractors on the Allam Marine project.
Work started in October last year and was completed earlier this month.
Mr Gibbons said: "This will enable Allam Marine to continue its long run of unbridled success and that is great news for the company and for the wider regional economy."
