German company Grimme has moved from Dunnington into a larger 17,700 sq ft base, comprising underfloor heating, a workshop with a gantry crane, stores, and three floors of offices together with a service yard and outbuildings for storage and servicing.

The company’s Market Weighton base will support customers throughout Yorkshire and Humber.

LHL Group, York, managed the entire scheme including demolition of existing, on-site farm buildings; architectural design, assisting with planning permission and managing the building contract awarded to Lindum Group.

Grimme UK managing director, Patrick Graf Grote, said: “The new premises will enable us to stock far more parts with better organisation; create greater efficiency by having more space to move equipment and be able to carry out repairs in a specially-designed workshop, rather than outside in the yard, while the overhead crane accelerates lifting tasks, and a new customer area allows us to provide a better visitor experience.

“We have been very well looked after by LHL.

“Their team has been extremely competent and efficient at delivering what we have wanted.

“The attention to detail and understanding of our requirements has been exceptional and, as a result, we are continuing to deal with them on other projects further afield.”
