Whitford Ltd. moves U.K. location to larger facility

Monday, 12 November 2012

Fluoropolymer coating manufacturer Whitford has moved its U.K. location to a larger facility nearby to accommodate recent growth as well as continued expansion.

Whitford’s new building is located only a few hundred meters from the old facility but boasts many improvements. The new site offers 78,000 square feet of total space, twice that of the old building. It now has 70 % more manufacturing space, which allows for improved efficiency, the company said, influenced by lean manufacturing and a Kaizen culture, the movement that promotes operational excellence. There is also 90 % more laboratory space than at the former location, with new equipment in the laboratory and quality-control areas. Updated stock-control systems have been developed to meet customer delivery expectations, and the office area has also doubled, the company said.
