The manufacturer and supplier of compressed air equipment has relocated to a new, larger, production facility “in order to meet growing demand.”
The new premises is three times the size of the previous headquarters, which the company says will ensure that it continues “meeting the needs of customers in sectors such as food, beverage, medical, general engineering, dairy, automotive and laser cutting.”
Hi-Line announced that “with demand for the company’s innovative, UK-made products continuing to grow, Hi-line sought to invest in its future by relocating to a facility that would not only allow existing production to expand, but facilitate a forthcoming extension to its class-leading product range.”
The new facility is located centrally in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, with “excellent” access to the A38, the A50, the M1, and the wider UK motorway network. An immediate benefit of the move, according to Hi-Line, is that lead-times will be further reduced on its range of dryer and generator products. In addition, the relocation has created many more jobs locally and allowed the company to take on twice as many apprentices this year. Importantly, there is also large trade counter and customer pick-up centre at the new site, ensuring that Hi-Line continues its “customer-centric” focus.
The significant investment in new premises has been supported by various grants for energy efficiency and investing in people and the original Hi-line factory will be used for additional warehousing for refrigeration air dryers.
