Norgren, an international market leader in pneumatic motion and fluid control technologies, is to relocate its UK headquarters to a new state-of-the-art facility in Staffordshire.
The new 104,000sq-ft Norgren Engineering Advantage Centre, at Fradley Business Park near Lichfield, will house manufacturing, research, sales and administrative functions for the company, which designs and manufactures pneumatic and fluid control solutions for rail, commercial vehicle, life sciences, energy, food & beverage and industrial automation applications.
Colin Leyden, Norgren UK Managing Director, commented, “While Norgren has enjoyed many successful years at Eastern Avenue, the time had come when we realised we needed a more modern facility to fully take advantage of the many commercial opportunities available to us. We were keen to find a facility local to Lichfield in order to retain the services of as many of our dedicated team as possible.”
“The new Engineering Advantage Centre at Fradley meets both of these criteria and will provide a UK headquarters befitting the Norgren name while being the base for further profitable growth for many years to come.”
Three-year frame agreement with Statoil Petroleum for the provision of front-end engineering design (FEED) services for future projects at the Kårstø and Kollsnes processing plants, located in Norway north of Stavanger and north-west of Bergen, respectively.
