Spiral opening workspace extension


A £600k office and factory extension for Cornwall-based Spiral Construction Ltd is due to be officially opened today (March 11) by West Cornwall MP Andrew George.

The extension, at Spiral Construction’s headquarters in Helston, has been supported by more than £265k of ERDF Convergence money with the rest of the investment coming from the company itself.

It will safeguard five existing jobs and create five more; support Spiral’s planned expansion into new products and markets and save the business money by making it more environmentally efficient.

Eric Nicholls, MD of Spiral Construction which is the UK’s leading manufacturer of spiral and helical staircases, said: “We are developing new products for the European market and have until now been working at capacity in our original buildings. This extension will help us meet the increased levels of competition in our sector, progress to the next level of sustainable growth and improve productivity and profitability.”
