Ainscough Wind Energy Services, a subsidiary of the UK’s largest lifting services company, is expanding its operations by establishing a new base on the Aerohub Enterprise Zone at Newquay Airport.
Ainscough is part of the Goldman Sach’s and Texas Pacific Group-owned Ainscough Cranes company, and provides turnkey solutions to the wind industry.
It had been operating from office space in Newquay town centre, but required a larger footprint in order to expand operations.
The new premises at the Aerohub Business Park will consist of office and workshop space. When developed, the facilities will enable Ainscough to expand its operations in the wind energy market, where it provides solutions for suppliers including the lifting, building and servicing of wind turbines.
Cornwall and Isles of Scilly LEP chairman, Chris Pomfret, said: “As the first business to set up on Aerohub’s Business Park, Ainscough Wind Energy will set an exceptional example of the type of business we are looking to attract to the development.
“It is a world-class renewable company with an excellent track record in the local economy and we look forward to supporting Ainscough’s ambitious growth plans.”
Director of Ainscough Wind Energy, John Fabby, added: “The opportunity to be part of the development at Aerohub was extremely attractive.
“We required a unique site that could meet our space requirements and Aerohub was the only place that could meet our demanding requirements. Ainscough Wind Energy is a growing company and looks forward to expanding alongside the development of the Enterprise Zone.
“The Business Park at Aerohub will allow us to operate freely as well as take advantage of the excellent connectivity at the airport.”
