Tritech International, specialists in the design and production of high performance imaging equipment for underwater use, is developing the land at Canal Head in Ulverston with a purpose-built facility to accommodate their design and production operations, which are currently based in Morecambe Road.

The 30,000 sq ft facility is part of Tritech’s plans to double its business over the next five years, with relocation scheduled for the middle of this year.

A new road to the development will also be created over neighbouring land owned by E H Booth & Co Ltd.

A spokeswoman for the company said: “Tritech’s new building is beginning to take shape and with the roof going on during January, the structure is growing into what will be the company’s new design and production site.

“Completion of the project is due mid-2014, when the company will move from its current site at Morecambe Road.

“The new site will have state-of-the-art facilities for the development of Tritech’s underwater technologies including a deep-water tank and a high-pressure testing facility to simulate the conditions their equipment will be subjected to subsea.”

Some of the equipment designed and manufactured by Tritech includes kit used to scour the seabed for shipwrecks.

The new facility is also expected to create additional new jobs, on top of the 60 employees at Tritech in Ulverston.

Managing director Simon Beswick said: “We are taking on a few new employees every year but the new site will give us the potential to create even more jobs.

“The move will enable us to continue to grow steadily.

“A move like this is very complex, so it was a great help knowing the development of this site was acceptable in principle.

“Finding a new site is not easy and we may have had to look outside South Lakeland had we not been able to find one like this.”
