Multi-million-pound building is flagship for ‘promising industrial future’

North East Lincolnshire Council have hailed a new multi-million-pound building as “the flagship for North East Lincolnshire’s promising industrial future.”

The building, which has been handed over to renewables firm myenergi, is located at the new Pioneer Business Park near Stallingborough.

Delighted by the striking new HQ, and already planning expansion with a doubling of its 60-strong workforce, myenergi co-founder and CMO Jordan Brompton said:

“When we founded myenergi, the vision was simple – create a positive impact, push the boundaries of possibility and change the world through pioneering green technology.

“Over the past few years, we’ve made hugely impressive strides – innovating, revolutionising and re-energising the marketplace.

“Expanding into our state-of-the-art headquarters marks the start of an exciting new chapter in the myenergi journey and comes as part of an ambitious corporate growth strategy.

“The move, which follows a 2,250 per cent increase in profitability during 2020, will see us double our workforce before the end of 2021, with new roles created across engineering, product development, marketing, and sales.  

“Holding the keys to such an impressive building is quite a privilege. It’s testament to the hard work of our team and we’re looking forward to making it home.”

North East Lincolnshire Council Leader Councillor Philip Jackson highlighted how such investment would ultimately benefit the whole of North East Lincolnshire, with increased business rates raising income for future investment.

“The whole SHIIP programme has huge potential to create well-paid and new high-tech jobs for this area, which will be hugely beneficial. In myenergi we have a forward-looking and ambitious anchor tenant and we now hope for more, which in turn must be matched by ensuring our local people have the skills to succeed in these new jobs,” he said.

Councillor Callum Procter added:

“What we are doing here is extremely bold in terms of a capital investment programme and is proof of this authority’s commitment to providing an environment and infrastructure that is attractive to businesses.  

“It is critical that our young people have the opportunity of skilled jobs here. So often we hear of talented young people leaving the area for the likes of Manchester and Leeds and not returning.

“That’s not because they don’t like the area but because the jobs are not here for them.”

Building works have been supported by £950,000 from the Government’s Local Growth Fund, supported by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, (Humber LEP) as part of the Government’s commitment to the Northern Powerhouse.

An interior design fit-out is scheduled to take place before myenergi move in later this spring.
