New Build Electrical Contract

ROFIN SINAR’S NEW FACILITY GETS UNDERWAY

The latest building to break ground at Bridgehead Business Park is Rofin Sinar UK’s new office, research and development and hi-tech manufacturing facility. The 80,000 sq.ft. two storeybuilding is the largest building so far to be developed by Wykeland on the Bridgehead site and the impressive structure is really taking shape now the steelwork has been erected.

Rofin Sinar, the award winning laser company, will relocate from its current premises in Willerby and the move will enable the company to nearly double its existing capacity. The expansion is being partly funded by a central government Regional Growth Fund grant administered through the Humber LEP. The grant will enable the company to invest in research and development and create over 60 new jobs.

Ken Lipton, Managing Director, said “At Rofin we value high quality workmanship, reliability, cost effectiveness and responsive after sales support from our service providers. Our current expansion plans are ambitious so now, more than ever, we want to engage with suppliers who have the necessary knowledge and skills to  confidently satisfy our business needs long into the future. Point is an established company with a sound base and track record in local industry, so I am delighted that Les and his team of electricians are there to support us.”

Gas Turbine & Power Generation support

Industrial Gas Turbine Support

Since its inception in 2001, Point Engineering has supported clients in industry by solving problems,  supplying components and assemblies, servicing machinery and getting mechanically involved to assist in the maintenance or repair of rotating production equipment and ancillaries.

Knowledge and experience has been key to the continued success of our business which has grown year on year by getting the job done. It has been said that we are a hidden jewel in a region once left off the industrial map.

Time for change – “ The Energy Estuary ” is a recent strap line promoted by the Local Enterprise Partnership to highlight the contribution made to grid power by the Yorkshire & Humber generating corridor. How many realise that this has been the case for decades not months?

The Humber LEP assisted Point Engineering to complete a £1.2m upgrade programme in 2014, which helped to increase our capability, capacity, knowledge and response times, to serve our growing client base. Inward investment by Large Enterprises to the region demands the support of a capable and responsive supply chain. We have recognised this need and responded to it by investing in the latest 3D design and CNC production technology and trained our staff.

Our sister company, Point Fabrications, holds Gateway Chassis and Gateway Fabrications on a separate factory site just a few minutes away from the Head Office, which is next to the new Hull Green Port Site on Alexandra Dock. Our combined businesses occupy more the 10,000sqm of factory, office and storage area with 80 people employed in using a variety of engineering skills and specialist knowledge.
