Just over 1,200 tonnes of AJN steel will be used in the construction of the new Parvalux Electric Motors UK headquarters in Poole, Dorset.
Working with structural steel and industrial cladding specialists, Jade-Aden Services, around 1,000 tonnes of beams, columns, structural hollow sections and plates, have already been supplied for the construction of the first three phases of this mammoth project.
Parvalux Electric Motors is a member of Swiss motor manufacturer, Maxon Group, and manufactures and sells small electric motors and gearboxes. In 2021, it tasked Jade-Aden Services with the development of its new eco-friendly UK headquarters.
Working in partnership with Lionel Gregory architects, concept designs were created which will allow Parvalux to amalgamate three of its existing production sites into one location and house more than 200 members of staff.

Due for completion and hand over in April 2023, the 160,000sq ft state-of-the-art, carbon neutral facility, will feature one of the largest photo voltaic arrays to be put onto a single building in the South of England. When complete, the system will generate all of the electricity required to heat and light the whole building.
Grahame Gibson, Managing Director, at Jade-Aden Services, said: “It’s been a pleasure working with AJN on this project and the support and advice at pre-order stage was of great help. All orders have been placed and processed without issue and with the quality of service we’ve come to expect and trust. More importantly, all of the steel has been delivered on time, which has been crucial to the smooth flow of fabrication and construction.”
