Quarry House Emerges As New Headquarters To Carry John Good Group Into Third Century Of Operations

Long-standing Hull business John Good Group is set to enter its third century settled into a new headquarters.

The sixth generation business, founded in 1833, announced its intention to move two years ago, when it sold its logistics, forwarding and liner agency Good Logistics, and welcomed a new chief executive. Now, with the steel framework up, Quarry House on Hesslewood Office Park has been unveiled, close to the current Bridgehead Business Park base.

Described as environmentally-conscious, sustainable materials are being used through to finishing touches, with the boardroom carpet to be made from recycled fishing nets. It will be home to John Good Group central services, Good Travel Management, and DAN Shipping, with space to accommodate further growth.
