Ainscough Wind Energy Services, a subsidiary of the UK’s largest lifting services company the Goldman Sach’s owned Ainscough Cranes, will establish a new base on the business park of Aerohub Enterprise Zone at Newquay Airport.
The announcement from Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership confirms the second major investor to locate to Aerohub since its formation.
Ainscough, which provides turnkey solutions to the wind industry, had been operating from office space in Newquay town centre.
The new premises at the Aerohub Business Park will consist of office and workshop space with state of the art facilities.
The company wants to expand its operations in the wind energy market, where it provides solutions for suppliers including the lifting, building and servicing of wind turbines. The facilities will be used for maintenance support for all major wind turbine manufacturers and hold out the promise of new, high skills jobs.
Chris Pomfret, chair of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership said “As the first business to set up on Aerohub’s Business Park, Ainscough Wind Energy will set an exceptional example of the type of business we are looking to attract to the development. It is a world-class renewable company with an excellent track record in the local economy and we look forward to supporting Ainscough’s ambitious growth plans.”
Director of Ainscough Wind Energy, John Fabby, said: “The opportunity to be part of the development at Aerohub was extremely attractive. We required a unique site that could meet our space requirements and Aerohub was the only place that could meet our demanding requirements. Ainscough Wind Energy is a growing company and looks forward to expanding alongside the development of the Enterprise Zone.
"The Business Park at Aerohub will allow us to operate freely as well as take advantage of the excellent connectivity at the airport.”
