Beverley-based Hodgson Sealants has just completed a two-storey office expansion programme, to cope with current growth and as part of ambitious expansion plans for its future in the sealants sector.
With a customer base in the trade and commercial sectors, Hodgson Sealants has grown to become the UK’s largest independent manufacturer of sealants and related products. Established in 1968 by Peter Hodgson, the company celebrated its 50th anniversary last year and still remains a family-based business.
This new head office facility includes an expansive reception area, spacious board room, meeting rooms, expanded office space for the commercial departments and canteen facilities to support the workforce. There is also further space allocated to the further growth in the business, which is a keen investor in the local labour force, which has grown by 40% in the last five years.
The company have also just returned from its debut at the FIT Show where the next generation hybrid HY-SPEC 25 product was launched to great acclaim. It’s a new type of sealant with a number of USP’s including the fact that it’s paintable.
Charles Hodgson, managing director of Hodgson Sealants, commented: “The new office expansion supports our current programme of work and will help facilitate further growth in the business. This is great news for the existing workforce and for the local community, as we look to recruit further staff within a business environment that’s based on true family values.”
