“We are bursting at the seams at a number of our offices, so relocating 120 or more staff will also give us the opportunity to consolidate a number of functions from different offices to improve the coordination and flexibility of our technical and engineering support functions.”
The site will incorporate application engineers from several product areas, as well as our design team, project/product assembly and customisation cells, along with a fully equipped repair and test workshop for drives.

“ERIKS is a leading name in its industry and its strategic decision to relocate to Prime Point is a boost for LCP, which recognised the need for units of this size and has invested millions of pounds into this speculative development to bring businesses and jobs here.”
