Aqua backs UK manufacturing with new facility

Temperature control company Aqua Cooling is launching a second office in the North of England, which will include a new manufacturing facility.

Based in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, the site offers warehousing, offices, a large rear yard of over 0.7 acres and a fabrication shop. The latter will be home to Aqua’s mechanical services team who will manufacture a range of products including custom built chillers and pump skids.  In addition, the company will be able to carry out product modifications in-house as well as on-site fabrication and installation works for clients.

“Finding a new, permanent home for the mechanical services team will enable us to increase our UK manufacturing capability” explained Ben Harris, Aqua’s mechanical services manager. “We’ll manufacture bespoke products and systems at Scunthorpe rather than overseas, so it will bring both manufacturing, and employment opportunities to the local area.”

The site will also allow Aqua to store more of its rental fleet locally, as well as stock units and will provide a second base for its northern team of hire, sales, and service engineers to work from. 

Part of South Park Industrial Estate, the new office is just three miles from Scunthorpe town centre, five miles from the motorway and has easy access to nearby air and rail links.   

Aqua already has a head office near Southampton, as well as regional sites in Glasgow and Leeds.  The company has over 23 years’ experience of the temperature control sector, designing, installing, and servicing a range of solutions for purchase or hire. 

“Our Scunthorpe site will mean we’re even closer to our customers, offering them quicker turnarounds than ever before, along with easy access to more of the Aqua team” explained regional sales manager, Mark Whittaker.

“It’s such a positive step for Aqua as a business, it supports our growth plans and I hope demonstrates to our customers that we’re committed to serving the region for the long term.”
