Dawsongroup emc, the contract hire supplier of industrial, municipal and specialist vehicles, has broken ground on a new purpose-built site in Yorkshire, following a 42% increase in turnover in the past two years.

The Brighouse-based firm, which has been operating from Armytage Road since 2005 when it acquired Northern Municipal Spares Ltd, will build a state-of-the-art facility on the existing site and a neighbouring piece of land, bringing all its operations under one roof.

The 26,000 sq ft site, which will comprise office space, a service and maintenance workshop, and vehicle storage, is set to open in Autumn 2024. The current team has relocated to temporary premises just half a mile away until the construction phase is complete.

Paul Beddows, sales director at Dawsongroup emc, said: ‘Having grown at pace in recent years, we had outgrown our old site significantly. The new facility will not only support our growing headcount and vehicle fleet, but it will also enable us to grow our first-class service and maintenance offer, which is what sets us apart from our rivals.

‘We look forward to welcoming our existing team, and some additional faces, to the new Armytage Road site next year. In the meantime, it’s very much business as usual for our loyal customer base.’
