Ventilation ductwork specialist, Senior Hargreaves, has undergone a quiet revolution. The company has completed a major redevelopment of their Lord Street site, adding 28,000 square feet of new manufacturing space and invested in lean manufacturing technology, with other radical changes in the pipeline.

“We have invested heavily in lean manufacturing, aided by leading consultants in the field, The Manufacturing Institute,” explained managing director, Kevin White. “This has enabled us to consolidate our operations on a single site and streamline production to achieve higher efficiency. We are also re-engineering the company culture so that change and constant improvement become integral to our thinking.”

Hargreaves is one of the oldest companies in Bury, but was one of the first North West companies to achieve the ISO14001 environmental standard. This requires continuously improving environmental performance, reducing waste streams, energy inputs and CO2 emissions. The company has further investment planned. New product ranges and a new strategy for apprenticeships and employee development will ensure it has the skills to support future growth.

“The changes have been partially financed by disposal of surplus land and buildings to strengthen the balance sheet. We have a strong forward order book and have the experience and capability to service sectors of the economy, such as nuclear, research and transportation, where there are major capital projects underway and in the pipeline. We are therefore confident that we will continue to be a major private sector employer in the town for decades to come,” concluded Kevin White.

Senior Hargreaves ventilation ductwork products play a key role in offices, laboratories and advanced manufacturing establishments throughout the UK maintaining safe, comfortable and productive environments.
