Expanding Allam Marine

Allam Marine Factory- Melton West Business Park

A £4.5 million project to construct an office and manufacturing complex for Allam Marine has been completed.

The project was undertaken on Melton West Business Park and was implemented by property developer Wykeland Group. The complex was commissioned by generating sets manufacturer Allam Marine in order to facilitate its ongoing expansion plans.

The state-of-the-art development adds 65,000 sq ft to Allam Marine’s existing 190,000 sq ft base, enabling it to double manufacturing capacity and increase its warehousing and distribution space by a third.

Assem Allam, Allam Marine, commented:

“We have watched the building get closer to completion over recent months and have been very excited about moving in.

“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 building looks fantastic and is very befitting of Allam Marine’s status of being the UK’s largest independent manufacturer 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 that are being created right here in East Yorkshire.”

Work began on the Allam Marine project in October 2011. Hall Construction Services Ltd was the main contractor on the project.

Wykeland Group Managing Director, Dominic Gibbons, said:

“The Allam Marine building is a landmark building on what we believe is East Yorkshire’s most desirable commercial development. We are extremely pleased with the finished product; it is bold and modern in design, yet built very much with function in mind.

“Finally being able to hand the keys to Assem represents another significant step forward in the growth of the Melton West Business Park. It 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.”

The Wykeland Group began construction of Melton West Business Park in early 2008 and since this time the group has developed more than 550,000 sq ft of premium commercial space at the site. Now that work is complete on the Allam Marine project, the building joins additional facilities at Melton West Business Park, including Heron Foods, House of Townend and shower manufacturer Kohler Mira.
