Siddall and Hilton Products Invest in Facilities | Yorkshire Manufacturing News
Welded steel mesh manufacturer Siddall and Hilton Products has made an investment of £350,000 to modernize its premises and refurbish its largest welding machine.
The Brighouse-based company has embarked on a three-week project to completely replace the roof of one of its factories on Foundry Street, increasing the amount of natural light in the building, improving its thermal efficiency and ensuring that it is sealed to maintain the products in perfect condition. .
At the same time, a new heating system was installed in both factory units, replacing the old and inefficient gas heaters.
The 17-year-old GRS144, one of five Siddall and Hilton Products welding machines and the largest welding machine in the world when built, has been completely reconditioned and refurbished during a program of two months by an internal team.
Ian Thurley, Managing Director of Siddall and Hilton Products, said: “It’s great to see our world-class vision starting to take shape. As a company with a 127 year heritage, there are parts of the site, both buildings and machinery, that need upgrading and following the MBO in 2019 this is a key part of our strategic plan .
“We are really delighted to have our largest welding machine back in production and looking like new, proudly alongside our latest £2 million welding machine which we added last year.
“Our continued investment in site and machinery redevelopment is part of our commitment to maintaining our position as the UK’s largest manufacturer of welded steel mesh for high security fencing, general fencing and industrial mesh panels. we will announce in 2022 as we move forward with our ambitious vision for Siddall and Hilton Products to be a world-class operation.”
