One of Hull’s best known family companies, the John Good Group, which can trace its history back over 180 years, is to relocate from the city centre, to a bespoke 8,600 sq.ft. office designed and developed by Wykeland.
The company operates from 16 sites across the UK, including Immingham, Manchester, Tilbury, Felixstowe, Leeds, London and The Tyne, as well as international bases in Izmir, Istanbul and Shanghai, meaning good transport links were an integral factor in identifying a new office location.
Alan Platt, managing director of the John Good Group, said: “As the John Good Group has expanded over recent years we have outgrown our head office at Maritime House and so needed to find somewhere new.
“Bridgehead is the perfect location because not only does it mean we are closer to the motorway network and Humberside Airport, we are still within easy reach of the Humber’s port complex.”
“Working closely with Wykeland Group means we have been able to design an office that precisely meets our needs. It comfortably accommodates our current team but also means we have the space to continue growing. We could not have chosen a better location than Bridgehead.”
The main contractor, Hull based Hall Construction Group, expect to complete the development in December to enable the John Good Group to move in and be operational for the New Year.
