Manufacturer relocates to exploit opportunities for growth

Minova International, a global manufacturer of ground support bolting systems, specialist injection resins and cement grouts, has moved to a fresh location in Barnsley.

To support a growing customer base, the company has expanded, and relocated from Redbrook Business Park to Ashroyd Business Park, off Dearne Valley Parkway. Its new base is a 22,000 sq ft warehouse and office facility, built to cater for construction market growth.

With the company investing over £700,000 this expansion will allow it to expand further. It has recently secured contracts for HS2, Network Rail’s Delivery Plan for 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2024 and a variety of other public sector investment projects, which has resulted in increased turnover.

Minova’s move will help to create further jobs opportunities and has been supported by the team at Enterprising Barnsley through property search support and advice.

Councillor Robert Frost, cabinet support member – regeneration and culture, said: “We’ve been committed to providing commercial premises in prime locations, which can support business growth and boost jobs opportunities in the borough.

“It’s fantastic that a successful global company has chosen to grow its operations here in Barnsley, and we wish them every success in their new premises.”

Michael Napoletano, Minova’s vice president for Europe CIS, said: “We are excited to announce the news of our brand-new UK office and warehouse.

“It’s a big step for Minova, demonstrating our commitment to the British market as well as Minova’s ever-expanding UK presence.

“We are very optimistic about opportunities here, and this new location will enable us to better service our growing customer base in ground support as well as infrastructure projects.”

Manus O’Donnell, Minova’s UK manager, who has led the relocation, added: “We are pleased to have made the move into our newly built, modern and more spacious warehouse and office facility.

“As Minova plan for the future, this move will allow for continued strong customer relationships and enhance the addition of a new customer base.

“Minova will continue to further enhance its diverse product offering for civil construction, mining and infrastructure markets for years to come.”
