Tippers ‘R’ Us open new multi-million-pound headquarters
Ipswich-based recycling firm relocates operations to new Kesgrave facility to ensure local market needs are met
TIPPERS ‘R’ Us have relocated their headquarters to a new custom-built site in Kesgrave, Ipswich, as part of a major investment programme across the Suffolk region. The Kesgrave site – which was previously owned by CEMEX – was acquired by Guy Nicholls, owner/managing director of Tippers R Us, three years ago.
The facility has given Mr Nicholls the ideal location and space for his new business to house and grow its operations and provide further opportunities for customers to benefit from a variety of services offered by Tippers ‘R’ Us, including waste-management, muck-away, aggregates and sale/hire of plant and equipment.
The new site features open plan offices, an automated truck wash facility, a 12-bay workshop and an aggregates recycling plant.
Demonstrating their commitment to the regional construction materials market, Tippers ‘R’ Us have also invested in a new £3 million McCloskey washing/processing plant on site, which will produce up to 1,400 tonnes of aggregate products per day, including 5–10mm, 10–20mm, 20–40mm and 40–60mm.
The Kesgrave site represents a new era for Mr Nicholls, having successfully sold another business 18 months ago.
He said: ‘Our headquarters is a result of two years of hard work from the brilliant team who we have been working with, along with the substantial investment. We are delighted with our new facilities, and customers and business contacts alike have been impressed with the new HQ during a recent open day event.’
