Airedale releases video of Rawdon reconstruction

Airedale International has released a video looking at the reconstruction of its Rawdon facility following a fire in September 2013.

The hand-edited timelapse video can be viewed at and shows 26 months of construction in four minutes.

The company is now fully operational at its new Rawdon facility, which was completed in January this year.

With an approximate area of 23,000m2, a footprint equivalent to three Wembley football pitches side by side, the internal layout has been redesigned to allow a more logical and efficient flow to operations, with all production and testing sited on a single storey and under one roof.

The new facility, which has a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating in recognition of its environmental credentials, includes a number of other important improvements to meet health & safety, aesthetic and environmental considerations that benefit both the business as well as local residents. 

In addition, the it features a state-of-the art R&D centre, one of the biggest in Europe, which will allow Airedale to further expand its research contribution to the region and further afield.

Managing director, Clive Parkman, said: “The project has taken a lot of effort from everyone involved and is an important step forward in Airedale’s strategy, strengthening our position as a leader and competitor in all of our key markets. The new factory will allow us to expand production to meet both domestic and export demand in the next few years. Along with this greater production capacity there will be growth opportunities across the company and throughout our supply chain.”
