One of Middlesbrough’s latest high-tech arrivals is continuing to expand in its new north east HQ.

Addison Project opened its base on the town’s Riverside Park in October, 2020 and now has a 30-strong team of design, engineering and project management specialists.

And they’re on the look-out for local talent to recruit to design, engineering and project management roles to build on the company’s recent successes.

The Addison team also includes T-level students, and they’re set to be joined by graduates and apprentices in the near future.

The firm’s north east expansion builds on two decades as an engineering service provider in Lancashire and Cheshire.

As one of the UK’s leading independent industrial design and project management companies, Addison takes on projects ranging from £5,000 to £50 million.

The company works closely with the local chemical sector and other related businesses, and is also looking to expand its Teesside presence by recruiting locally for future roles.

Middlesbrough Mayor Chris Cooke called in to meet the team, and find out about the opportunities and challenges facing businesses relocating to one the region’s fastest growing industrial parks.

Kevin Simmonds, Addison Project’s Group Sales and Marketing Director, said: “When Addison opened the Teesside office during the pandemic, it was a typically brave move for us.

“Interestingly, although it was initially to provide a firm base for our engineers, rather than temporary accommodation on client sites, it’s come full circle.

“Not only is the office full, we’ve also expanded that site presence even further!

“We told the mayor then that we would create local job opportunities, we kept that promise and it’s wonderful to see that the various political and education bodies supporting us in this.

“After cementing our presence in the region, we’re already starting to expand beyond the immediate Teesside area.

“We’re delivering projects across the wider North East, Scotland and the South East from here, the vacancies on our website tell their own story.

“There’s a recognition from the regional manufacturing sector that quality engineering is needed and we’re delighted to provide our own version of that.”

Middlesbrough Mayor Chris Cooke said: “When Addison were looking to establish a north east HQ, Middlesbrough and Riverside Park offered them everything they needed.

“The company’s burgeoning growth is proof that their initial investment in this area is paying off, providing jobs and opportunities for local people and giving a very real boost to the local economy.

“I’m delighted their faith in Middlesbrough has proved well-founded, and we’ll do everything we can to support their continued growth.”
