Plans have been submitted to expand the operations base of stairlift manufacturer and leading supplier Stannah.

Property developers Stoford has submitted plans for a second phase of development at Andover Business Park on behalf of Stannah.

The application proposes the development of a 136,100 sq ft unit on a c.10 acre plot to the north of the business park.

Stoford will develop the new unit adjacent to Stannah’s recently completed 90,000 sq ft factory and its contemporary design will create the appearance of a unified campus.

The low energy consuming building will be built to BREEAM standards and will contain a range of sustainable features, including solar panelling, LED lighting and air source heat pumps, with cycle storage facilities and provision for future EV charging points.

It will comprise three levels of office accommodation, as well as new access arrangements, landscaping, a service yard and parking facilities.

The development is part of Stannah's long-term strategy for expansion, maintaining Andover as its primary UK manufacturing location where it has been based since 1974.

Stoford Director, Edward Peel, said: “We are excited to put forward plans for the second phase of development of Stannah’s new campus at Andover Business Park.

"We’ve already worked in partnership to successfully deliver a high quality, sustainable unit as part of phase one and are excited by the potential to develop a new warehouse/distribution unit on the adjacent plot. It will not only support Stannah’s future growth but sustain valuable manufacturing jobs in Andover.”
