MKDP helps to support business growth and new jobs in Milton Keynes
Integral Powertrain has received planning permission to build a new Technical Centre in Shenley Wood on land purchased from MKDP. The new facility has been designed to support the company’s current business needs as well as its ambitious growth plans.
Integral Powertrain provides a range of technical solutions to power vehicles more sustainably and employs more than 150 people in Milton Keynes who work from three different sites. Rapid growth has seen the company outgrow its existing locations and expansion has become necessary to ensure the levels of service, quality and efficiency their customers have come to expect continues.
Planned to be operational by Q3 2019, it is intended that the new 5,500m² facility will enable the company not only to consolidate most of its operations at one base so that its staff can collaborate more effectively, but also to accommodate future staff required for projected growth.
MKDP’s chief executive Charles Macdonald says: “Integral Powertrain approached MKDP for help to identify a suitable site that would meet its requirements. We have been working closely with their management team to understand their needs and offer appropriate land and professional support.”
John McLean, director at Integral Powertrain says: “Our company is continuously evolving to meet our customers’ future needs, and the new facility will enhance our ability to deliver market leading solutions. We have been keen to create a new Technical Centre in Milton Keynes to support our growth and create a great working environment for all our staff. We are grateful to MKDP and q2 Architects for helping us navigate the property development processes and are really looking forward to seeing our new building take shape.”
