Torin-Sifan has invested more than £2m in a new state-of-the-art production facility.


Based in Swindon, the EC Manufacturing & Technology Centre is set to become a centre of excellence for the production of highly efficient EC (electronically commutated) motor, fan and blower products. The new building will enable an expansion programme focused on delivering energy efficient, quiet and controllable air movement solutions for clients all over the world and has created 25 new jobs.


On 12 February, Torin-Sifan celebrated the opening of the new facility at Pagoda Park in Swindon. Justin Tomlinson, MP for North Swindon, and the Mayor of Swindon, Councillor Teresa Page, officially opened the building by cutting the ribbon at Torin-Sifan’s Investing in British Manufacturing launch event, followed by guests touring the new facility.


The new 25,000sq ft facility houses purpose designed production lines, a sales and marketing suite, and staff welfare area.


This year marks Torin-Sifan’s 50th anniversary. Its expansion with the opening of the EC Manufacturing and Technology Centre follows five decades of manufacturing in Swindon with the new facility allowing the company to increase EC production by over 20%, whilst continuing with the manufacture of its traditional product ranges at its existing Greenbridge HQ.


Managing director Neil Sproston said: “As we celebrate 50 years of British manufacturing and innovation, we are delighted to open a world-class manufacturing centre here in Swindon.”


He continued: “This expansion of our manufacturing capabilities means we are even better able to offer our global customer base cutting edge air movement technology and improved facilities will benefit both customers and staff. To be able to manufacture successfully in the UK is testament to the quality of our products and to the skills base here.”
