New facility for Wakefield Acoustics

Posted on 27 Nov 2015 by Fred Tongue

Wakefield Acoustics opened its new advanced facility at Flush Mills, Heckmondwike.

MP for Bately and Spen Jo Cox unveiled a plaque at the new facility that makes industrial and environmental noise controls.

As well as Jo Cox MP, Mayor or Kirkless Councillor Paul Kane and members of Heckmondwike council toured the new facility.

The new manufacturing plant is 40,000 sq ft and also includes offices. The move to a larger facility will enable the organisation to serve its growing international customer base.

The move to the new facility has also meant that the company could take on seven new employees from the local area.

Lee Nicholson, managing director of Wakefield Acoustics, commented: “We are very proud to have officially opened our new facility, which signifies a substantial step forward for the company.

“The new premises will allow us to continue to serve our customer base, which has seen significant growth in recent years, as well as continue to hire more staff from the local area.”

The new facility is another commitment to the firm’s aim to grow as the company has invested heavily across all areas of the business, and the new plant affords the company a significant opportunity to continue to expand and develop.

Wakefield Acoustics recently announced a healthy 50% increase in turnover since 2012, with plans in place to double turnover by 2018.

Activity increased in a number of core markets, with orders growing across the board, while continued progress was also made in international markets such as the oil and gas sector.
