Gledhill expands its Blackpool manufacturing facility

Posted 23rd January 2015

Due to the recent additions to the Gledhill’s StainlessLite range including the Horizontal and expansion of the Heat Pump cylinder options, the company has invested in a new 18,000 sq ft facility, adjoining the existing 100,000 sq ft manufacturing centre, to increase its stainless steel production capacity.

Tim Barrett, the operations director explains: “This addition to our existing site will enable us to increase stockholding of our market leading StainlessLite Unvented and Stainless Vented cylinders, which in turn ensures that our regional depots can keep their promise of same day collection or next day delivery on a wide range of cylinders.

Gledhill is not a company that stands still, constantly developing its existing range of cylinders as well as new and innovative ideas. The extra space will not only help our existing production, but also allow for the future growth of product ranges.

Managing director, Jason Hobson, adds: “This investment is part of our strategic approach to ensure that we can offer customers both the best product range and highest service level possible from a cylinder manufacturer.”
