A big, bold and bright banner, welcoming visitors and commuters into the city of Hull, marks the beginning of the partnership between Hull 2017 and The Strata Group. Located on the rear of their Hawthorn Avenue premises, the banner is visible from the main train routes into Hull and welcomes all passengers into the city. As a Hull based company the group are looking forward to working closely with Hull 2017 as a Supply Partner over the next year.
The Strata Group was established in Hull over 25 years ago and is made up of a local workforce. This makes the partner status hugely important to the group as it is a chance to represent the city across Hull 2017.
Tony Schultz, Group Chairman at The Strata Group, said: “As born and bred Hull locals, we are very proud to be able to work alongside the Hull 2017 team on some of the exciting projects planned for the City of Culture year. We have, and always will, have a keen interest in the betterment of our home, Hull, and its surrounding areas. Our Hull staff are totally committed to our investment in 2017 and really proud to be able to play their own part”
The partnership between The Strata Group and Hull 2017 will see the group helping to fabricate, engineer, dress and kit out key points across the city. The group are no stranger to these sorts of projects, having recently created the floating Hull 2017 logo installation in Queens Gardens in Hull City Centre. They also helped engineer and install 54 giant moths on buildings across Hull and the East Riding as part of the Amy Johnson Festival’s A Moth For Amy trail. Details of specific projects The Strata Group will be involved in during Hull 2017 will be confirmed over the coming months.
