A Scunthorpe firm looking to expand its business and create new jobs.
Highseal Manufacturing Ltd, which manufactures windows, is seeking planning approval to build a warehouse on its Hebden Road site.
Planners at North Lincolnshire Council have been told the expansion would add six jobs to the present 30-strong staff.
They have also been told the building is to accommodate continuing growth and expansion.
The planning submission continues: "This will provide new jobs and improve the economic output of the area."
Residents have been assured there would be no production on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
Highseal Manufacturing was established in 2012 and is based in Scunthorpe but its distribution range covers the UK.
It provides a comprehensive range of PVC-u, aluminium and timber windows, doors, conservatories, modular external buildings, roofing structures and other home improvement products to the trade and domestic markets.

The company's website says it has grown year-on-year and now has an increasing number of associate traders, installers and blue-chip clients nationally.
The planning application comes after the company revealed last month that it had secured new orders worth £4 million after being accredited with the BSI Kitemark.
At the time, it was announced that the accreditation followed a £130,000 investment from the Donaldson family, who own the business, which was contributing to a recruitment drive.
