In June 2016, Habasit UK was pleased to formally open our new purpose-built centralised lean manufacturing Fabrication and Office facility in Elland, West Yorkshire.
As introduced to you in the 1st Edition of ‘’Highlights’’, following conclusion of a company-wide consultation process that included ‘voice of the customer’ feedback, we were pleased to announce our investment in a new purpose-built centralised UK lean manufacturing Fabrication and Office facility. Placing customer needs at the heart of our business, this significant investment in the UK establishes the optimum platform from which to both heighten the long term customer experience of working with Habasit and to achieve our Roadmap 2020 objectives of:
- enhanced positioning of the business to be closer to our existing & targeted customer base
- promotion of organisational efficiency and enhanced lean manufacturing capabilities
- reduced lead time delivery to customers
- investment and development of employees and infrastructure
Habasit is committed to Yorkshire and the wider UK. With our redeveloped Bingley Production Unit (which will remain located in Bingley) and new purpose-built Elland Fabrication & Office facility, plus an extensive network of Habasit Regional Service Centres and aligned Network Partners – in the UK, we produce a comprehensive and market leading range of belting technology products, locally fabricate, stock, market and service our customers with the core objective being to create ethical long term customer relationships.
Located 1 mile from M62, Jct 24, for enhanced logistics, the benefits of our new Elland location are quite clear:
- Located within ca. 2 hours from the majority of UK’s industrial manufacturing / production facilities
- Located between Leeds (ca. 30 mins) and Manchester (ca. 30 mins)
- Well served by Leeds – Bradford and Manchester international airports
- 24 hrs / day despatch and technical service capabilities
Accordingly, as all former Silsden based activities and functions have now been transferred to our new Elland facility, we warmly invite you to visit us to ascertain how we can further fulfil your belting technology and process application needs and discuss which areas of Habasit’s resonating Value Proposition can be leveraged to match and exceed your business needs e.g. Conveyor up-time availability & Total cost of ownership, Inventory management, Lowering of Net Working Capital.
