Underwater imaging company Tritech has acquired a site at Canal Head in Ulverston, Cumbria, for a new office.

Tritech plans to develop the land in Ulverston with a purpose-built facility to accommodate its design and production operations, which are currently based at a different location in the town.

Tritech has a long association with the area, initially working with partners System Technologies before they became part of Tritech International in 2006.

Architect for the new office is Harrison Pitt Architects. Design & build contractor is Esh Construction, with Reg G Parkins & Partners the structural engineer and Walmsley Associates mechanical & electrical engineers.

Ross ShineRoss Shine, pictured, and Ian Hardman, both property partners at North West law firm Brabners, both acted for Tritech on the land purchase.

Shine said: "This was a legally complex deal involving a landlocked greenfield site and required a range of specialists to advise.

"We are delighted to have been able to assist Tritech on such a significant transaction."

Jacqueline McCloy, finance director at Tritech, said: "The purchase of the land at Canal Head, Ulverston marks a turning point in our plans to establish the new premises, which is a significant development not least for the area, but for Tritech as we invest in the technologies and operations to grow our business."

Tritech employs around 100 people worldwide, with sales and customer support offices located in Aberdeen, Scotland and Texas, US and a design facility situated in Edinburgh, Scotland which complements the manufacturing and engineering operations in Ulverston.
