Anchor tenant revealed for Stallingborough Business Park

The anchor tenant for a brand new building on the new Stallingborough business park has been announced.

myenergi, whose mission it is to promote green energy within the home and the electrification of transport, was founded in 2016 and has already outgrown its current manufacturing premises in Binbrook. The company has submitted a temporary change of use planning application to use the former Wickes building in the centre of Grimsby whilst their new building is under construction.

The new 15,500 sq ft unit is planned to be myenergi’s flagship headquarters, incorporating office space with product development and research. An option to construct a large warehouse on the adjoining site is part of their phase 2 development plans.

The unit, the first to be developed on the Stallingborough business park, achieved planning permission last December as a speculative build, but North East Lincolnshire Council has been working closely with growing local business, myenergi, on the design specification ahead of the start on site in the next couple of months.

Geo Houlton, a Hull based company, won the competitive tender to build the unit for North East Lincolnshire Council. Founded in Hull in 1879, Houlton employs more than 130 staff, and has completed many projects throughout Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

Andrew Kingston, Managing Director of Geo Houlton, said: “We are delighted to be working with North East Lincolnshire Council to deliver this project. The project is part of a wider scheme to regenerate Stallingborough Interchange, creating around 3000 jobs so we are extremely proud to have been selected by the authority to play a part in delivering their long term objective.”

The first building is being constructed with the aid of a £950k grant through the Local Growth Fund, Humber Growth Deal grant programme, secured by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership as part of the Government’s commitment to the Northern Powerhouse, to build a flagship building on the site. This will create in excess of 80 jobs, and will attract more investment to the area.

The £42m South Humber Industrial Investment Programme (SHIIP) is set to transform North East Lincolnshire’s industrial fortunes. Comprising three strands – the build of the new business park next to Stallingborough interchange, the build of a new link road to open up access between the two key ports, and the creation of mitigation sites to offset developments in the area – the SHIIP programme is unique.

The access to the new Stallingborough site is currently being created with works ongoing on the A1173, and developments are already creating a lot of interest from businesses looking to invest on the site.

Cllr John Fenty, Cabinet member at North East Lincolnshire Council for regeneration and skills, said: “I’m delighted to have myenergi sign as the anchor tenants on the new site, further cementing our credentials as a key part of the Energy Estuary. Additionally, the South Humber programme is incredibly important in terms of bringing local jobs to local people and this will provide the first tangible results.

“We’ve a long way to go to make sure that the business park fulfils its potential, but with myenergi having the confidence to choose our area, others will follow.”

Dr Chris Horne, myenergi Commercial Director, says: “This is an exciting development for myenergi as we continue to grow by investing in UK manufacturing and committing to local employment.

“It’s been great working with NELC to develop the detailed plans for our new headquarters. Their team has taken the time to really understand our business and then deliver a building that meets all our requirements. We can’t wait to move in!”

Taking shape along the South Humber bank the project is being supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, (HLEP), the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP) and North East Lincolnshire Council, under the management of council regeneration partner ENGIE.
