PROMAT UK, manufacturer of fire, thermal and acoustic solutions, has completed its multi-million pound, 66,000 sq. ft development programme to create a new headquarters and manufacturing plant in Heywood, Greater Manchester.
The site will manufacture a range of products from the company’s portfolio, which includes glass brands such as Pyrocet, Pyrosec and Smokestream, Systemglas and Dalfratex.
The two-year Heywood development programme, which has doubled Promat UK’s production space and increased staff numbers by 20%, has seen the company relocate its HQ from its original home in Bracknell, and integrate its made-to-order workshop and specialist solutions operations that were previously located at Bromborough on the Wirral. The new factory serves clients in all industry sectors across the UK, with four new purpose-built CNC machines ensuring that bespoke products are precision manufactured to the highest quality standards.
General manager Ian Cowley said: “The completion of our relocation programme and creation of this superb new facility cements our place at the forefront of the UK fire protection market.
“It’s an exciting time for the business and the realisation of our goal to establish an industrial hub in the North West of England, where there is a great talent pool in manufacturing and excellent supporting networks.”
The completion of the move comes as Promat UK announces that it has also now achieved its transition to the 2015 updates to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, the two key internationally recognised quality and environmental management standards.
