Spinlock move into Cowes Police Station

Leading marine design and manufacturing company, Spinlock, has purchased Cowes Police Station, almost doubling the size of the award-winning company’s head office on the Isle of Wight.

The police station site, which has lain empty for the past six years, is situated opposite Spinlock’s head office in Birmingham Road, Cowes, which has been home to Spinlock for more than 40 years.

Chris Hill, Spinlock CEO says, “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.

“As well as expanding our sales & 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. We also host many regular international customers who visit Cowes and Spinlock to support development of their business with us, and this superb new location, sympathetically renovated but to modern standards will allow us to greatly extend the experience we offer.”

Spinlock, which also operates a production facility on the island, currently employs 60 staff. All of its products are designed and manufactured in Cowes, before being shipped to more than 63 countries globally.
