Mill Nurseries is one of our longest-standing clients and one we’ve been proud to accompany on its successful journey towards becoming one of the UK’s biggest growers.
Our relationship began two decades ago and we are about to help them deliver their latest multi-million-pound project, to expand their greenhouse growing capacity by 25 per cent.
The successful family business, established in 1962, is already East Yorkshire’s largest tomato grower and sixth largest in the UK, supplying over one hundred million tomatoes a year to supermarkets Cooperative, Waitrose, Morrisons and Lidl.
The latest build project, which will add eight more acres of glasshouses to the current 24-acre capacity at its Mill Nurseries site, has been fuelled by increased Cooperative orders and is commencing later this month, with completion planned for this November.
Pearson Electrical will be carrying out the electrical installation work required to get them up and running.
We will be creating a detailed project plan including mapping the electrical distribution to the new greenhouses, designing and building the distribution and control panels that will power the many pieces of automated equipment including fans, heating, lighting and thermal curtains – and, of course, installing the eight acres of electrical wiring.
