Last Thursday, we launched our brand new Stockton-based headquarters to support the rapid expansion of our growing business and commitment to growth and innovation in Teesside, providing a modern and efficient workspace for our employees.
Having outgrown our previous office premises close to the A19 on the Stockton North Tees Industrial Estate, our purpose built HQ at Urlay Nook gives us 30% more space to allow for the future expansion of the business both in terms of staff requirements and material storage.
Maurice Moore, Commercial Director at Mandale Group, said: “The transformation of the new office and warehouse space has not only made working for Mandale so comfortable, but has also allowed staff to socialise together, making for a better environment for the whole team. The wellbeing of all the staff is reflected in the number of attendees using the excellent facilities provided by Mandale and I’m sure will lead to the retained growth of the company in Teesside and beyond.”
Helen Woods, Sales Director, added: “We purchased 44 acres in Urlay Nook to develop an industrial business park that will bring new businesses and jobs to the area. It has such great links to the major roads, Teesside airport and with the Freeport status it will be really attractive to companies looking for a base in the North East.
“The Mandale office and warehouse was the first on site, but we are already into phase one of the 23 hybrid industrial units we have planned for the site. These will be ready for occupation in the Summer of 2024.”
Tees Valley Mayor, Ben Houchen, who is visiting our new office later this month, said: “Mandale Group are a true Teesside success story and it’s incredible to see their continued growth and on-going commitment to our region through this latest expansion. Their new HQ means Mandale now have space to expand, win new work and take on more staff, which is exactly what we like to see.”
The grand opening event, held on Thursday, February 2nd, was attended by Middlesbrough FC footballer Matt Clarke – we are proud partners of the Middlesbrough Football Club Foundation as part of our commitment to our local community. He was joined by pupils from Eaglescliffe Elementis training academy, which we also support through sponsorship, alongside local business leaders.
Jeremy Good, director at ELG Planning attended the open day event and said the office “rivals any recently constructed office scheme in the region.”
He said: “Building on the historic planning approval, Mandale have done a great job delivering this high-quality office scheme which, for its staff facilities and build quality, must be rivalling any recently constructed office scheme in the region.
“It’s great news for Stockton that such a long-established employer has put down roots on this prestigious site and we look forward to working with them and the planning department to deliver the rest of the scheme.”
