Press Release - Business: Gateway Chassis Ltd
1.2m Engineering Group expansion

11th Feburary 2013


Gateway Chassis and Gateway Fabrications are companies in the Point Group. During the early months of 2009 the Gateway companies were moved from Gilberdyke to a leased factory site in East Hull adjacent to the Point head office. Point Fabrications acquired the two Gateway companies in late 2008 with a view to continue the expansion of the Point brand in steel fabrication and welding markets.

Increasing demand for the goods manufactured led to the addition of a second leased production site nearby in 2010. Further growth and opportunities in 2011 indicated the need for a single site with room to accommodate the increasing manufacturing and logistical operations. The new premises were purchased on Friday 16th November allowing preparations for the move to commence before the Christmas shutdown.

The 1.2m project has combined two separate chassis production facilities and satellite office to operate from one 2.8 acre site on the Sutton Fields Industrial Estate. Production at the new site commenced in the first week after the New Year. Now that production is in full operation on the first line, the second line has come on stream and shift work, previously not possible at the old site, is set up.

Gateway Fabrications operates from the same site to offer design, welding & fabrication services for various new market sectors, including Renewables.

The Point Engineering Group of companies combines specialist engineering knowledge, skills, resources and equipment to offer clients a one stop point of contact. Since January 2001, Point has provided the Yorkshire and Humber region with engineering support services, manufactured components, assembled systems, designed solutions, serviced equipment and installed machinery to assist wherever their expertise is required. The Head Office base for Point and its original core services remains on Lee Smith Street in East Hull and now, combined with the new facility, the Engineering Group will provide support to a wider client base across the region and beyond.

Funding for the expansion project is supported by HSBC and Finance Yorkshire
