Supplier to the engineering industry, Edco Seal and Supply, has quadrupled the size of its Leicestershire HQ by moving to a new £1.8m facility in Enderby.
Bought outright by the business, the new HQ will be a distribution centre, complementing Edco’s technical centre in Knutsford near Manchester.
Edco owner and managing director Craig Eddas said: “Our new location is one of the best in the country – close to the M1 and M69 and therefore close to the M6. So it is great logistically and also close to operations of the global carriers such as UPS and FedEx.”
The 20,000 sq ft of space at Quartz Close, off Warren Park Way, is four times the size of Edco’s former home in Whetstone.
Eddas added: “We were bursting at the seams at the old place. We can store more products now and in a highly efficient way.
“It’s a brand new building, very secure and really does reflect the professionalism that has enabled us to grow. This takes us to another level. Owning it gives us really firm roots in Leicestershire and we will never have to move again.
“This is now our permanent home and we want to work with more manufacturers locally who require products like ours. There’s an open invitation for them to come in and see what we do, talk to us about what they need and together create a strong local supply link.
“Coupled with our technical centre we can service industrial markets and OEM manufacturers to supply high-end products for markets such as aerospace, space, oil and gas, rail, military and marine.”
Edco was advised by the Leicester chartered accountant Mark J Rees.
