Rotork grows into extended head office facilities
Rotork has expanded into new office, workshop and production storage facilities at its worldwide headquarters in Bath.
The new building will home Rotork PLC, as well as the southern office for Rotork UK, which was set up in 2012 to rationalise all of Rotork’s home market electric, fluid power and manual valve actuation activities under a single banner. Rotork UK’s northern office, actuator and gearbox factory will be moving into larger new premises in Leeds early in 2014.
The new Bath offices also house Rotork’s systems sales department, reflecting the increased demand for Rotork’s digital control network solutions including the advanced wireless Pakscan system. Enlarged office and workshop space is also provided for Rotork Site Services, the company’s specialist retrofit, maintenance, repair and asset management organisation. Under the same roof, 872 square metres of new warehouse space has been created to give additional support to burgeoning production at the main electric actuator manufacturing plant, where IQ3, IQT and CVA actuators are built.
The new facilities have freed up space in Rotork’s original head office building, facilitating expansion of international sales, marketing, engineering, research & development and business development departments, positioning Rotork for continued growth in Bath for the foreseeable future.
