Aarsleff Ground Engineering has upgraded and expanded its Newark, U.K., plant premises which accommodates the company’s extensive fleet of rigs, fabrication shop, training facility, machinery and equipment available to hire. Despite challenging and uncertainty during the pandemic, Aarsleff Ground Engineering has remained highly active, resulting in the decision to upgrade its premises.
The upgraded premises were officially launched in August 2021, following a 10 month build and renovation program. The facility expands storage space for equipment and a substantial area for repair and maintenance works, which includes a state-of-the-art painting booth for spraying and branding machinery. The expansion will provide additional full time employment opportunities for fitters, electricians, welders and apprentices.

The upgraded facility has two soundproofed, connected and purpose-built training rooms that will host courses for internal employees and external delegates.
Kevin Hague, Aarsleff’s managing director, said “The new facility represents our commitment towards the positive development of Aarsleff. Our never-ending desire to improve and innovate will be supported by this new hub.
“Our intention is to attract and support apprentices and industry talent, but it will also provide higher vocational training and in time, support new skills in ground engineering.”
