2 Minute Read
Armstrong Fluid Technology has announced plans to relocate its West Midlands factory, warehouse and offices to larger premises in nearby Droitwich. The move will enable the company to continue expansion of its UK production capabilities, to meet growing worldwide demand for its off-site manufactured plant rooms and energy centres.
Armstrong Fluid Technology is a leading manufacturer of packaged HVAC and fire solutions for the data centre, gas transmission, commercial, district energy and other markets. The company has been manufacturing at its Heywood Wharf site in Halesowen since 2004. Alongside Armstrong’s factory and HQ in Greater Manchester, and sales office in London, the West Midlands site is a key facility, specialising in the construction of plantrooms and energy centres, packaged plant systems, and fire pump packages.
A steady increase in business over the last 5 years have meant that operations have outgrown the available space at the Heyward Wharf site. In the coming months, the company will relocate its Midland’s based manufacturing operations, warehouse, and office staff to a larger, purpose-designed site at Pointon Way, Droitwich. With over 69,000 sq ft of space, easy access to the M5, an extensive warehouse, and specially-designed loading bays, the larger, newer facility will have significant benefits for Armstrong customers.
Simon Parker, UK Country Leader for Armstrong Fluid Technology said, ‘The new consolidated manufacturing facility will aid greater collaboration between departments and provide us with enhanced build and storage capacity, as well as increased flexibility to more closely meet the demands of our customer base. In the future, we hope to welcome more visitors on site so customers can get a first-hand perspective of our project engineering design centre and our manufacturing capabilities.
‘Our success to date is in no small part due to the expertise and commitment of our Midlands team, which is why we have remained as local as possible to Halesowen to retain our highly skilled and valued workforce.’
With over 1200 employees worldwide, operating eight manufacturing facilities on four continents, Armstrong Fluid Technology is known around the world as a leader and innovator in the design, engineering and manufacturing of intelligent fluid-flow equipment.
