Design and manufacturing company Spinlock has doubled the size of its base on the Isle of Wight with the purchase of Cowes police station.

The building is situated opposite Spinlock’s current head office in Birmingham Road, which has been home to the company for more than 50 years.

The new office will provide around 5500sq ft of space and will be used to house Spinlock’s design team, R&D Test Lab and sales and marketing division, as well as provide more space for training and hosting customers.

“Developing the police station allows us to secure the space we require for continued growth in new and existing markets, while maintaining our prime and iconic location in Cowes,” said Chris Hill, Spinlock CEO.

“As well as expanding our sales and marketing team to support Spinlock’s export markets and new sectors such as commercial marine, the new space will provide enhanced new R&D test facilities for faster development of new products.

The company, which also operates a production facility on the island, currently employs 50 staff. All of its products are designed and manufactured in Cowes, before being shipped to more than 63 countries globally.
