Armstrong UK expansion continues with new Droitwich site

Armstrong Fluid Technology has marked the latest phase in its UK expansion with the official opening of a new systems manufacturing centre at Pointon Way, Droitwich.

Armstrong Fluid Technology designs, engineers and manufactures intelligent fluid flow equipment, control solutions and optimisation technologies for use in HVAC, Plumbing, Gas Transmission and Fire Safety applications.

Earlier this year the company announced plans to relocate its West Midlands factory, warehouse and offices from Halesowen to larger premises in nearby Droitwich. The move provided additional space for operations to accommodate growing demand for off-site manufactured plantrooms and energy centres.

Armstrong has manufactured packaged plantrooms at a site in Heywood Wharf, Halesowen since 2004. The new site was a key facility for Armstrong, specialising in the construction of plantrooms and energy centres, packaged plant systems, and fire pump packages. A steady increase in orders meant that operations outgrew the available space at the Heywood Wharf site, prompting the relocation of manufacturing operations, warehousing, and office staff to a larger, purpose-designed site at Pointon Way, Droitwich, the company said.

Simon Parker, UK country lead for Armstrong Fluid Technology, added: “This is an extremely proud day for our company. The new consolidated manufacturing facility will support greater collaboration between departments and provide us with enhanced assembly and storage capacity, as well as increased flexibility to more closely meet the demands of our customer base. Our success to date is in no small part due to the expertise and commitment of our Midlands team, and it gives us all great pleasure to mark the beginning of this new phase. We look forward to welcoming customers, suppliers, and new additions to our team to the new site in the coming months.”
