British engineering company, Gilberts Blackpool has increased its warehouse capacity by almost 10% in response to demand for its advanced grilles, louvres and diffusers, and natural ventilation solutions.
The growth is due partly to the health of the British building and construction sector. It also reflects Gilberts’ own development: the company has invested in the development of an R&D and testing facility, implemented a new sales strategy with enlarged technical sales team, and invested in advanced new processing technology, including a new laser fabrication centre.
Gilberts’ Managing Director, Jonathan Haslam, explains, “Our significant and sustained growth means we now need more capacity. The extension will deliver an additional 8500ft2 (790m2) of manufacturing and warehousing at our headquarters.”
Its Blackpool head office currently includes an 85000ft2 (7900m2) manufacturing facility, and an air distribution test laboratory. Gilberts manufactures every component in house – to the extent of designing and engineering its own tools and dies.
Its 1400 ft2 (130m2) test centre enables thorough, accurate testing of air distribution grilles, diffusers and natural ventilation terminals to establish their full aerodynamic performance including throw, temperature, pressure and acoustic data.
