Expansion programme complete at Elland Steel
A £3.1M investment and expansion programme, which commenced in August 2006, has recently been completed at Elland Steel Structures’ Halifax facility.
Making use of an adjacent disused warehouse, Elland has moved much of its production into the additional 12,820m² space.
The scheme has also included the installation of new specialist equipment which has helped increase production capacity.
New equipment consists of a FICEP 1001 DZ CNC high-speed spindle drilling unit, close coupled with a plasma and oxy-fuel coping system. Both of these machines include the new labour-saving scribing technology.
Elland said its production line has been further enhanced by the installation of the latest Schlick four turbine ETA wheel shotblast system.
A fully integrated conveyor roller system is also now in operation as well as a new treatment area featuring the most advanced heating, ventilation and extraction processes, compliant with the Pollution Prevention and Control Regulations 2000.
“The company realises it is vitally important to maximise efficiency, quality and service in order to maintain and enhance strong working relationships with clients,” said Elland’s Managing Director, Bob Thorpe.
