Humber Electrical Engineering marked the start of its expansion plans by welcoming Alan Johnson, MP for Kingston Upon Hull West and Hessle to its city centre factory to meet staff and new members of its board.
Following recruitment of two new board members, Bryan Irving and Ian Morl in January 2013, the company announced major expansion plans in order to secure the long term future for its 85 employees.
The three year plan presented to Alan Johnson involves moving to new premises within Hull and a large scale investment in new equipment to increase manufacturing efficiencies. This move will see the recruitment of up to 20 new members of staff in order to deliver new manufacturing processes. Planned recruitment includes developing relationships with local universities and colleges in order to benefit from local graduates and apprentices.
During his visit, Alan Johnson took the time to meet employees across the site. He said “Humber Electrical Engineering has played a strong role in the history of Hull manufacturing and I am delighted to support them with their long term expansion and recruitment plans”.
Humber Electrical Engineering currently employs 85 people and is based in Hull City Centre. It has an excellent reputation in providing electrical services to the Marine, Offshore, Renewables, Industrial, Commercial and Public Sectors. The expansion plans are expected to have a long term supply chain benefit on the huge number of local companies who supply Humber Electrical with components.
Bryan Irving, CEO of Humber Electrical said “We have a long history of national and international work and whilst these revenue streams continue to grow, we are also closely looking at new opportunities within the Humber Estuary. We are delighted to have Alan Johnson on board with our plans and we look forward to his continued assistance in order to secure the long term future of the company and its employees”.
