ERIKS UK announces launch of new super branch

A new ERIKS UK super branch is set to open in Grimsby bringing 21 jobs to the town.

The new Europarc-based ERIKS UK service centre will open its doors in July and will provide products and repair services to businesses in the region.

The centre will be the largest facility in the region offering maintenance, repair and supply of industrial products to local firms.

Equipped with a 10 ton overhead crane, the 20,000 square foot branch will launch with two days of seminars and supplier trade stands on July 1 and July 2. There will be 25 supplier specialists on hand to solve technical issues as well as three free engineering seminars aimed at increasing plant efficiency for local businesses.

Speaking about the launch General Manager Michael Ingall said: “In the current economic climate, more businesses than ever are choosing to work in partnership with companies like ours to service and repair equipment.

“We have chosen Grimsby as the site for this super branch because of its thriving industrial community. Our new location will make working with us very easy.”
