Deritend moves gearbox production to new facility
Deritend Industries has announced today that it is intending to move all it's West Midlands based gearbox production, repair and fabrication work to its new state-of-the art engineering workshop based at Brandon Way, West Bromwich. The new facility will house the smaller gearbox work for the West Midlands area as well as the Large Rotating Machines business established there in early 2008. The new facility joins several of Deritend's 14 other workshops across the UK offering true 24hr maintenance support and engineering services.
Commenting, Operations Director, Alex Meiklejohn said: "The industries we serve are predominantly 24hr operations, from power stations, to water processing plants, hospitals, petrochemical sites and some of the larger food producers. It makes sense for us to concentrate our operations on the most up-to-date and modern facilities in each area. Deritend has effectively been doubling-up with the maintenance of the former RMB Engineering works, also in West Bromwich. The proposal for this older facility is that it will now be closed in-line with our plans for business development and a balanced geographical coverage."
The new, purpose-built facility at Brandon Way provides Deritend with 32,000 ft sq of efficient work space specially designed for working with gearboxes and large machines. It has already allowed the business to significantly expand its capacity to serve industries such as power generation, mining and steel production with large gearboxes and fabrication work. The integration of the smaller gearbox business completes the change-over to the new site, based just a mile away from the original facility.
