Office furniture manufacturer Elite Furniture has confirmed it plans to relocate to a new purpose built site next year.

Goole-based Elite Furniture has appointed building contractor Harrisons, which has begun construction work for its new 245,000sq ft factory and head office in Airmyn off Rawcliffe Road.

Due to the company outgrowing its current location on Britannia Road, the new site, which also includes a new showroom, is expected to be completed by the end of the year, ready for a move in date in early 2017.

Elite Furniture highlighted that the new factory will allow it to manufacture its products more efficiently, whilst minimising operation costs and reducing its environmental impact, as well as growing its output for its UK and overseas clients.

Elite Office Furniture UK Limited commenced production in Howden, East Yorkshire in 1986, moving to its Goole site two years later.
