The new premises comprises 45,700 sqft of factory and over 12,000 sqft of office space, more than double the size of their old site only a quarter of a mile away.

 

Managing Director, Chris Jewers, said: “This is a hugely proud moment for the family, the company and our amazing employees, all of whom have worked incredibly hard to put the business in a position where we have been able to make this happen.”

 

The new building is highly insulated with energy efficient heating and cooling systems in both the factory and offices. The offices have a heat recovery system which maintains fresh air around the building while minimising heat loss. There are over 200 M2 of photovoltaic panels on the roof capable of generating over 42kW of power and with plenty of space to expand in the future. Excess electricity can be fed back into the National Grid. Low energy LED lights which are sensor controlled are fitted throughout factory and offices – not a light switch in the building. There are 8 EV charging points for employees in anticipation of the uptake in electric and hybrid vehicles and with provision to easily increase this number in the future.

 

Jewers had been at its previous headquarters in Biggleswade since 1993. But with the workforce growing and now with offices to support in the Middle East, North America and Europe, they made the decision to construct a purpose designed workshop and offices to design and manufacture their range of industrial sliding folding doors, aircraft hangar doors and bespoke industrial door solutions.

 

The Esavian range of sliding and folding doors are in service on every continent and in more than 40 countries. They are the most advanced hangar door system in the world and remain the premium choice for commercial airlines, military, MROs, FBOs and Royalty.

 

Recent projects include the supply and installation of a pair of 70 metres high, bespoke hinged doors on the mobile gantry for the European Space Agency’s Ariane 6 space rocket in French Guiana.
