£1.1million building officially opens
Representing a significant investment in the future, the new MJA Metalwork headquarters covers over 7,500 sq ft and was designed and built by our very own team.
The building was officially opened by MJA Metalwork MD, Mike Allen, and Operations Director Rod Harcourt. They were joined by VIP guests Damian Green, MP for Ashford, and Jo James OBE, Chief Executive of the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce.
The opening event took place on Friday 5th November.
This site will provide MJA staff with a new training centre, sales suite, design room, dedicated welding stations and the latest safety equipment.
Managing Director, Mike Allen, said: "As a family business, seeing a £1.1m investment come to life, giving our team better facilities to do their jobs more safely and efficiently, is a proud moment. To be able to grow our business whilst also reducing our carbon footprint is even better.”
The building is constructed to be eco-friendly with smart-LED lighting and electricity and heating from renewable sources.
Operations director Rod Harcourt added: "Having Damian Green and Jo James here to officially open our new site really enforces the pride that the whole team are feeling. We’ve been based in Ashford for decades and now have a site that matches our future aspirations.”
