Chesterfield-based Atlantic Pumps says the move follows several years of "phenomenal growth" and will place the company at the front of pump innovation and fluid management related supply to the quarry and recycling industries in both the UK and abroad.
The premises will bring together Atlantic’s Chesterfield and Sheffield operations and create a new manufacturing and research hub.
The hub, which is situated on Carrwood Road in the Sheepbridge Industrial Estate on the outskirts of Chesterfield, will allow Atlantic Pumps to increase manufacturing output and house greater stocks.
The company says it will also allow it to develop its Audex, SlurryPro, Gromatex and EnviroHub brands.
EnviroHub is a control system used to monitor, treat, and report on water discharge quality. With increasingly stringent environmental standards being applied to quarries and construction sites, Atlantic Pumps says that a robust monitoring system such as EnviroHub plays a vital role. EnviroHub made its industry debut in late 2020 and the company says it is now experiencing huge interest from the construction and quarrying sectors.
Managing director Andy Smith comments: “This move is very much the next step of our journey in supporting our customers and is vital for maintaining the service levels which have driven our growth.
“It will enable us to make customers lives easier and offer more sound, sensible solutions to pumping challenges in the quarry and recycling industries."
