Airedale’s rise on video

Airedale-Feb16-003UK: Now fully operational in its new Rawdon facility, Airedale International looks back at its re-construction over the last two years in an engaging time-lapse video.

Following a fire in September 2013, construction started on the new facility in November 2013 and “New Rawdon” was completed in January 2016.

With an approximate area of 23,000m², a footprint equivalent to three Wembley football pitches side by side, the internal layout has been redesigned to allow a more logical and efficient flow to operations, with all production and testing sited on a single storey and under one roof. The new facility, which has a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating in recognition of its environmental credentials, includes a number of other important improvements to meet health and safety, aesthetic and environmental considerations that benefit both the business as well as local residents. 

“The project has taken a lot of effort from everyone involved and is an important step forward in Airedale’s strategy, strengthening our position as a leader and competitor in all of our key markets,” said md Clive Parkman.

“The new factory will allow us to expand production to meet both domestic and export demand in the next few years. Along with this greater production capacity there will be growth opportunities across the company and throughout our supply chain.”

The new facility also features a state-of-the art R&D centre, one of the biggest in Europe, which will allow Airedale to further expand its research contribution to the region and further afield.
