Armacell's improved site

Armacell issues site extension works at its Oldham plant

  • 16 Mar 2016

Armacell has started site extension works at its Oldham plant, which will benefit from new amenities, equipment and transport and access facilities.

Based in Oldham, the plant is one of Armacell’s 23 global manufacturing facilities. It is a principal site for the production of the company’s ArmaSound RD, AF/Armaflex Class O and Tubolit insulation ranges, which are commonly used for industrial processes and heating and plumbing applications.

Spanning over 26,000 square metres, the factory has achieved both ISO 9001 and 14001 certification. The planned site extension works reflect a commitment to improving the infrastructure and capacity at the premises, following the success of Armacell’s technical application training centre, which was recently opened on site.

Scheduled for completion next April, the multi-million pound development programme will deliver a new logistics area and warehousing space.

The site will benefit from a new layout, which will accommodate new extrusion and milling equipment for the Armaflex range.

An extension building will house Armacell’s additional manufacturing activities, including pre-fabricating fittings for pipe bends, elbows and t-pieces, as well as the production of ArmaSound.

The main office building will be updated to include wheelchair access; new roof canopies, outdoor seating, access gates, windows and shutters will also be included.

A disused building on site is also being renovated into a new office space for Armacell’s finance and admin team.

Improved access and transport

A one way access system will be built for the benefit of the heavy good vehicles which frequently visit the plant. Once the work has been completed, freight vehicles will be able to park at a covered despatch area, which will feature automated loading bays and additional holding lanes.

Spanning 6,300 square metres, the new site has been designed to create a smooth flow of traffic to the new warehouse building; Armacell also hopes it will help to prevent congestion on the surrounding access roads.
