Specialist engineering company, FPE Global, has announced the launch of a brand new state of the art test facility and manufacturing operation.
Situated at the firmâs UK headquarters in Stockport, near to Manchester Airport, the 30,000 sq ft facility is one of the biggest in the UK.
The test facility covers 3,500 sq ft and offers a full range of materials handling technology, including a multi-phase 500m pneumatic conveying system which is one of its only kind in the UK.
The new facilities have been built with the aim of helping customers to reduce risk with capital investments associated with materials handling infrastructure.
The range of materials handling located at FPE Global allows customers to conduct full scale material handling trials before final specification and purchase order placement.
The manufacturing site has been designed to allow an efficient flow of materials, while also providing a separation between stainless steel and mild steel production.
The new facility will also provide full scale assembly and test capability to ensure that new products and systems are fully built and tested before they are dispatched, allowing a âvertical start upâ when products arrive to customerâs facilities.
Chief Executive at FPE Global, David Cooper, said that the launch of the new manufacturing and test facility is another major step on their growth journey as they look to enhance their services to clients throughout the world.
Cooper added: With one of the largest and most advanced facilities in the country, we are now able to provide a world class service to our customers from initial concept through to on site delivery, start-up and throughout the life of the installation.
This full scope capability is what sets us apart from our competition and enables FPE Global to guarantee maximum efficiency and return on investment for our customers.
