Rillington-based cable cleat manufacturer, Ellis Patents has invested £500,000 in a 25% expansion of its headquarters.

The main element of the expansion is a new 10,000 sq ft warehouse, which was built by S Marshall.

While the new facility will be used primarily for assembly and storage, its construction has freed up 7,000 sq ft of space in existing parts of Ellis’ premises.
