Steel framework appearing on the Stallingborough skyline marks a milestone in North East Lincolnshire Council’s transformation of the area’s industrial landscape.

Burgeoning Lincolnshire green energy firm, myenergi, will be the anchor tenant on a new ‘oven-ready’ Business Park. Part of the South Humber Industrial Investment Programme, (SHIIP), the Park is currently under development on the edge of the A1173 just off the A180.

The work is on schedule with a build completion early in 2021. The 15,500 sq. ft. unit incorporates office space with product development, manufacturing, and research areas. There is also an option to construct a large warehouse on the adjoining site as part of the firm’s phase two development plans.

This new Stallingborough Business Park is part of the council’s ambitious SHIIP (South Humber Industrial Investment Programme). With a goal to create up to 3,000 jobs within the next decade, SHIIP comprises of the Park, the new Humber Bank Link Road and the award-winning Cress Marsh wildlife and bird mitigation site.

Company co-founders managing director Lee Sutton, and Jordan Brompton, visited the site in July 2020 to see the structure of their new purpose-built HQ, offices and production unit going up. They were joined by representatives from their landlords at North East Lincolnshire Council, the authority’s regeneration partner ENGIE and build contractors Houlton.

“Myenergi is now known in the national and global marketplace and we are determined to show Grimsby as a leader in green energy. We are the first here, and we hope to see other complementary businesses join us – wouldn’t it be great to see a renewables cluster on this Park,” she added.

North East Lincolnshire Council Deputy Leader and regeneration lead, Cllr John Fenty, stressed the importance of the authority triggering such progress by acting as landlord.

“The council has taken the lead in developing this site and developing what is a strong landlord and tenant partnership, ensuring the needs of the tenant are met. To see cranes working here is what it’s all about and we are delighted that the myenergi team has stayed here. This is a great start for SHIIP,” said Cllr Fenty.
