Flexicon Europe Ltd. has moved its new UK headquarters to a significantly larger facility in Whitstable, Kent to consolidate all of its operations under one roof.
The company was previously located in Herne Bay, Kent where it occupied a primary facility, and subsequently expanded by adding an adjacent manufacturing plant.
Strategically located in an industrial park with rapid access to motorways and hotels, the new facility increases manufacturing area, office space and operational efficiencies, and accommodates a larger staff. The company-owned building is also fitted with energy-saving lighting and heating systems.
Flexicon Managing Director Keith Bourton explains that the Whitstable facility not only expands their total area, but consolidates it under one roof with large open spaces, significantly improving production flow and manufacturing capacity. Featuring twice the administrative space than before, the HQ facility includes new conference facilities for visiting customers and an expanded staff of technical sales personnel responsible for sales throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
The facility produces a broad range of bulk handling equipment including flexible screw conveyors, tubular cable conveyors, pneumatic conveying systems, bulk bag dischargers, bulk bag conditioners, bulk bag fillers, manual dumping stations, drum/box/container tippers, weigh batching/blending systems and automated plant-wide systems integrated with new or existing processes.
Flexicon Europe Ltd. is part of the Flexicon Group headquartered in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA. Flexicon's global operations are located in Brisbane, Australia; Port Elizabeth, South Africa; and Santiago, Chile.
Flexicon Corporation (Australia) represents the Flexicon Group in Australia.
