Manufacturing group Bradbury announced its move to new state of the art premises in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, built at a cost of £8 million.
The 135,000 sq ft facility will host a new Salvagnini punch form line and a new fully-automated powder coating paint line, significantly reducing any work in progress and the need for heavy manual handling by employees. It can store up to 4,000 finished units, 10 times more than the previous facility.
Managing director Tim Strawson commented: “The decision to move to a new facility became a necessary investment as we simply outgrew our previous production facility. Since 2010, Bradbury Group has secured a fivefold increase in turnover, and we predict a continued growth of around 20% per year.
“This investment marks the start of a new journey for Bradbury Group. We’ve invested in infrastructure, machinery and our people, and we’re very proud to continue the company’s growth in our home town of Scunthorpe.”
