Armstrong expands with Droitwich site

Armstrong Fluid Technology marked the latest phase in its UK expansion with the official opening of a new Systems Manufacturing Centre at Pointon Way, Droitwich.

Earlier this year Armstrong 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 is 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. With over 69,000 sq ft of space, easy access to the M5 motorway, and an extensive production area, the new facility creates important strategic value for Armstrong customers.

At the official opening of the new Systems Manufacturing Centre on 9 September 2021 Armstrong customers and suppliers joined representatives from local government and the business community to celebrate the milestone in Armstrong’s history. Officiating to cut the ribbon was Jason Kee – Trade Commissioner of the High Commission of Canada. 

At the event, Armstrong announced plans for new employment and training opportunities, and discussed the sustainability measures that have been taken to enhance environmental performance of the new facility.Since announcing its intention to move to the area, the company has recruited 16 new staff members of staff, taking the workforce based at the Droitwich site to a total of 81. The company now plans to recruit another four new employees, with vacancies for Mechanical and Electrical Fitters, Welders and Stores personnel.
