In November of last year we knew our lease at the old Hayhill indstrial estate was coming for renewal. The landlords wanted a 5-year lease, but as we have plans to build our OWN industrial unit over the next 24 months, we didn't want to be tied down
We located an alternative unit. Not only was this bigger, and available on a rolling 1-year lease, but it was closer in to our nearby town of Loughborough, and close to many of our major suppliers. So we made the decision to move in there

The unit - prior us to moving in - has clean lines, and features a seperate "end room" at the back, perfect for... ah... but we'll come onto that in a minute..
On moving in one of our first actions was to build a set of mezzanine floors. These sturdy structures not only allow us upper-level storage space for spare belts, rollers, motors etc, but also define conveyor welding and fabrication bays at ground level.
With our larger space, and superior ergonomical equipment layout, we can now produce conveyors even faster than our previous (already impressive) build rates, as well as having reduced lead times from our local suppliers.
