Newly built HQ to begin fresh chapter for 190-year-old family-owned group
A brand new head office is being built in Hull for sixth-generation family business, John Good Group, and is set to be complete in early 2024.
Founded in 1833, the group’s divisions operates in the Travel, Maritime, Logistics, Property and Renewables sectors.
Its new HQ will be at Hesslewood Office Park, a development owned by Brooklands Property Holdings.
The building, called Quarry House, will be home to the John Good Group central services, Good Travel Management, and DAN Shipping with space to accommodate the company’s ongoing growth.
Adam Walsh, chief executive officer of John Good Group, said: “The move to Quarry House is an exciting one for the John Good Group and its people.
“One of our major ambitions is to be a company that offers its people the best opportunity for personal and professional development, and to help achieve that, you need a great working environment.
“We have a very capable and growing team at the John Good Group and they all deserve a first-in-class place to work. The new location will help us retain and attract talent and act as a hub for our businesses and customers.
“When you add a superb new office, into the beautiful grounds at the Hesslewood Business Park, you’ve really got the perfect combination and it will be a place we will proudly call home. Moving day can’t come soon enough.”
Walsh added the construction of the head office is using sustainable materials. He noted sustainability has been at the heart of the office build, even down to the boardroom carpet being made from recycled fishing nets.
Debbie Barbor, chief executive officer of Brooklands Property Holdings, added: “We are pleased to see the John Good Group continue their journey at Hesslewood Office Park with the construction of their new head office.
“They are dedicated to sustainability, community engagement, and growth which resonates with our values at Brooklands.
“We are excited to support their transition and provide a space that encourages innovation and collaboration, allowing the John Good Group to flourish whilst enhancing their contributions to the local Hull community and beyond.”
