MICHELL Instruments has moved into a new, custom-built premises just outside Ely. The new offices have been developed to house Michell Instruments' expanding team.
The custom-built factory has a new service laboratory designed to provide the customer with the best possible service. There is also a new production line that will in turn offer reduced delivery times and added value for the customer. The factory not only improves the working environment and development of Michell Instruments, but also reflects the direction of the company as it expands.
The 25,000 square foot premises was developed on the Lancaster Way Business Park, just two miles from the city centre. The park is a modern and fast-developing area with direct links by rail to London and a central location to other key cities in Britain. The site also has room for further expansion.
Michell Instruments chief executive Mike Bannister said: "I am extremely proud of our new head office in Ely. The custom-designed manufacturing and office facilities provide our staff with almost twice the space we previously had in Cambridge.
"Our continued rapid growth as a world-wide force in industrial instrumentation is helped tremendously by the availability of first class facilities. The 3.7 acre site provides us with ample opportunity to further expand here in Ely."
The move signalled the end to Cambridge premises that was home to Michell for nearly 30 years. Michell Instruments currently employs more than 100 staff, 70 of those based in the Ely headquarters.
