Servelec Controls has relocated its panel manufacturing and test facility to the site of its Head Office in Eckington, south of Sheffield. The move has almost doubled the manufacturing facility to over 15,000 sq ft, with the capacity to build more than 150 panels at any given time.
The multi-disciplined engineering team has also relocated to the Eckington site, which has been the home to the Servelec Group for almost 40 years. The increased capacity allows the manufacturing and engineering departments to meet the growing demands of the two Servelec Controls businesses: Oil & Gas and Power & Nuclear.
75 staff have now relocated to Eckington enabling them to work alongside colleagues involved with live projects in the manufacturing and test areas.
The site, which covers more than 2 acres, lies within close proximity to the M1 motorway, providing excellent transport links to the company’s broad range of clients within the UK energy industries.
Significant investment into the existing facilities has been essential for the company's aim of increasing its manufacturing and engineering capacity in order to achieve continued growth in the both the Oil & Gas and Power & Nuclear divisions. The facility will support energy projects both in the UK and around the world.
The relocation is in line with ambitious growth plans that will see expansion across the manufacturing and engineering teams in the next 3 years.
Servelec Controls Managing Director for Oil & Gas Kevan Jones was delighted with the move:
“The move gives us improved facilities and the capability for expansion within the Engineering, Manufacturing and Test departments. The new manufacturing and office facilities at Eckington are impressive and give the business the freedom to continue its growth in the coming years.”
The manufacturing facility also encompasses new controlled stores facilities, client meeting rooms and excellent staff amenities.
