Whittle Jones, agents acting on behalf of Northern Trust Company Ltd, are pleased to announce that Ashgarth Engineering Ltd have expanded their operations at Number One Industrial Estate in Consett.
Ashgarth Engineering who offer a subcontract engineering service to its customers in the supply of volume precision machined components have been occupiers on Number One Industrial Estate since 2017. Following a period of growth for the business, they have now doubled their space moving into the recently refurbished Unit 34B.
Niall Ash of Ashgarth Engineering commented on the expansion “Ashgarth Engineering was established in 2017 with two employees and a single CNC machine in a 2,400 sq ft factory unit. Over the past 4 years we have seen consistent growth through investment in new machines to support our key customers across a broad range of market sectors. This progress has meant that we have now outgrown our factory unit and the recruitment of our eighth member of staff and the delivery of our sixth machine, next month, has been the catalyst for us to take the next step into a 5,200 sq ft unit.”
