Smart Move by SuperFoil Insulation
Banks Long & Co is proud to announce the sale of a five-acre site in Lincoln which marks a “homecoming” for the buyer’s managing director!
Nottingham-based manufacturer and supplier, SuperFOIL Insulation is moving to the former Lincolnshire Co-op Food Distribution Centre, which will become the company’s new headquarters.
The company, which produces high performance insulation for residential and commercial properties, will be moving its entire operations to Pioneer Way.
The site will also be the new home of web development agency Orisel, after the two companies announced a partnership earlier this year.
SuperFOIL, which was founded by Lincolnshire entrepreneurs Will and Craig Bown in 2006, employs 18 people and produces around 1.5 million square metres of insulation every year. Last year the company posted record profits after sales grew by 25 per cent.
SuperFOIL is currently based in Tuxford, Nottinghamshire, but for the last two years, the father and son partners have been looking for a permanent location in Lincolnshire.
Managing Director Will Bown said: “I grew up in Lincoln and went to Uni here, so this city has always been my home, but until now we’ve not been able to bring our business operations here.
“Looking for a permanent location which suited all our needs has been a long process, but this site on Pioneer Way ticks every box, I’m really excited to be bringing SuperFOIL to Lincoln; a really dynamic, growing city with a great deal of potential.
“SuperFOIL has enjoyed a really successful first 12 years, as we’re growing and making a name for ourselves in the construction sector. This new site will enable us to continue growing, bringing more jobs to Lincoln as we trade around the world.”
Lincoln-based Orisel was founded in 2015 by director Bjorn Bojen. The company is currently based at The Old Pumping Station on Great Northern Terrace in Lincoln, but now the two companies will work within the same premises.
Lincolnshire Co-op’s agent Banks Long & Co acted on behalf of the Society in the sale of the Pioneer Way site.
Director William Wall said: “SuperFOIL has strong connections to the city of Lincoln. It’s a forward-thinking employer with a commitment to sustainability so we’re pleased to have been able to provide them with a permanent home which enables them to relocate their business to Lincoln.”
