Armstrong relocates to West Midlands 

Armstrong Fluid Technology is relocating its West Midlands factory, warehouse and offices to larger premises in nearby Droitwich. The move will enable the company to continue expansion of its UK production capabilities, to meet growing worldwide demand for its off-site manufactured plant rooms and energy centres.

The new Armstrong site.

Armstrong has been manufacturing at its Heywood Wharf site in Halesowen since 2004. Alongside Armstrong’s factory and headquarters in Greater Manchester, and sales office in London, the West Midlands site is a key facility, specialising in the construction of plant rooms and energy centres, packaged plant systems, and fire pump packages.

A steady increase in business over the last five years has meant that operations have outgrown the available space at the Heywood Wharf site. In the coming months, the company will relocate its Midland’s based manufacturing operations, warehouse, 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 larger, newer facility will have significant benefits for Armstrong customers.

Simon Parker, UK country leader for Armstrong said: 'The new consolidated manufacturing facility will aid greater collaboration between departments and provide us with enhanced building and storing 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, which is why we have remained as local as possible to Halesowen to retain our highly skilled and valued workforce.'
