Eltherington celebrates Hull City of Culture

1st January 2017

Eltherington is marking the start of Hull’s City of Culture 2017 by showcasing some of its recent architectural metalwork projects on view around the city.

Most recent of these is C4DI (Centre for Digital Innovation), which thrusts a striking new aesthetic on the Hull skyline. 

Eltherington manufactured C4DI’s high quality bespoke aluminium window pods at is headquarters based just outside the city centre. Now complete, the development announces a new point of arrival on Hull’s well-known Queen Street. 

Another development that showcases Eltherington’s architectural metalwork capabilities is The Arc. Manufactured from perforated aluminium panels, it creates a dramatic, visually appealing structure in the centre of Hull, whilst the perforations provide practical benefits by allowing maximum light into this environmentally-friendly, low-carbon building. 

Eltherington manufactured The Arc’s curved, perforated panels from marine grade aluminium, a high strength alloy with good corrosion resistance and excellent resistance to salt water/industrial atmospheres. 

Alongside this, Eltherington supplied all the aluminium elements on a 14 storey residential building in the heart of Hull. It also supplied column casings for the internationally-renowned Hull KR Rugby league stadium and various health centre buildings in the city. Eltherington, which currently employs around 200 staff, has been manufacturing high quality architectural metalwork solutions in Hull for over 50 years. The company supplies around the UK as well as international markets as far afield as America, Middle East and Russia. 

Alongside its architectural solutions, Eltherington operates a metal stockholding business in the city, including a Sales Counter. The company’s extensive leisure products manufacturing business supplies many of the caravan and leisure home companies in an around Hull. 

Antony Eltherington, Managing Director at Eltherington’s, said: “We are delighted to have supplied many of the buildings that are now regularly featured in Hull City of Culture material. As a company we’ve been manufacturing in Hull for over 50 years and it is fitting that we celebrate 2017 City of Culture by moving to larger premises.” 

In 2016, following continued business expansion, Eltherington made a multi mullion pound investment in a new manufacturing and office facility on Hedon Road, Hull, having outgrown its existing premises on Dansom Lane South. The move to the new premises will be completed in the first half of 2017. 

“It’s fair to say that Eltherington has played a small part in building Hull City of Culture over the decades,” added Antony Eltherington. “We remain one of the largest employers in Hull’s manufacturing sector and fully support all the work that City of Culture is doing to put the region on the map.”
