Integra Announces Major Expansion Plans

Modular construction firm Integra Buildings has announced its plans for a major expansion of its base in East Yorkshire.

According to PCB Today, the fast-growing company is in the final stages of acquiring six acres of land adjacent to its base in Paull, near Hull, and has submitted then plans to East Riding of Yorkshire Council to incorporate the land into its operations.

The development will increase Integra’s site footprint to more than 14 acres and aims to create space to meet the current and future requirements of the award-winning company.

The plans will also create 20 new jobs, which is key to Integra’s management team ambitions to double its revenues to £60 million within the next three years. The land has been earmarked for a new production facility as well as storage, loading and dispatch areas.

Managing Director Gary Parker said: “We need more room to deliver our current projects, service our very healthy order book and continue our growth. We’re already bursting at the seams much of the time.

“It’s also absolutely essential to maintain operations on a single site, for operational efficiency and to maintain our competitiveness. The expansion of our current site, where we have already invested millions in facilities, is the perfect solution.”

The firm’s growing customer base includes major construction companies, local authorities, and other public sector bodies. Integra designs and constructs modular units at the Paull site, before delivering and installing them on sites across the UK.

Integra has invested £3 million in the transformation of its operations at Paull, including a state-of-the-art building, which was self-built on-site using the firm’s cutting-edge modular construction methods, serving as a showcase for the quality of the services the business provides for clients.

The firm has witnessed significant growth in recent years, with revenues rising from £18.6 million in 2016, before the investments at the Paull base, to a projected £30 million-plus in 2020.

There has also been significant growth in the firm’s workforce, from 86 employees in 2017 to 117 today. The growth has also included an apprenticeship programme, soon to be boosted by six new apprentices joining the company in October.

Integra consulted with East Riding Council’s planning department before submission of the application for change of use of the land and development of the new production facility. Pending approval of the plans, Integra intends to commence work integrating the land to the site in six months.

Mr Parker, who launched Integra with a handful of colleagues in 1997, said that the latest major investments were critical to ensuring the business is future-proofed and for the growth of the business, meeting the ambitions to double revenues to £60 million by 2024, and ensuring the firm has the space to grow and realising its potential.

“This is a landmark moment in the development of the company and we’re very excited by the opportunity to move to the next level,” he said.
