A peek inside Airedale’s new hq


UK: Airedale has produced an updated virtual tour of its new manufacturing, technology centre and administrative facilities now taking shape on the site of its former factory, which was destroyed by fire in 2013.

With the company just a few months away from a planned phased relocation, the internationally-renowned air conditioning manufacturer has provided a sneak peek at how its new hq in Rawdon will look both internally and externally. The photos above are external and internal shots of the new factory taken only yesterday.

The phased moved back to Rawdon is on schedule to begin late this year with all departments expected to be fully operational from the new facility in early 2016.

The movie and a live time lapse camera and month by month recording of the redevelopment works both internally and externally is available on the Airedale website.
