Balmoral Tanks invests more than £10m in new South Yorkshire-based factory
Aberdeen-headquartered Balmoral Tanks has invested more than £10m (€11.3m) in a purpose designed factory in South Yorkshire and an upgrade to its manufacturing processes for its range of epoxy coated and concrete tanks.
Balmoral Tanks, which has design and production operations in Llantrisant, South Wales, and Barnsley, South Yorkshire, is recognised as being a key supplier to the water, wastewater, anaerobic digestion (AD), fire fighting and processing industries worldwide.
The new facility, due to open its doors by the end of 2017, will have a brand new epoxy coating line, in-line shot blasting unit, latest laser cutting technology and fabrication facilities.
Allan Joyce, managing director at Balmoral Tanks, said: “Having built up a strong balance sheet over the years we are in the enviable position of being able to invest in new technology. As an engineering company at our core, we have designed a plant and installed processes that will be at the very forefront of coated tank technology.
“Supported by highly trained and committed personnel from technical sales and design through manufacturing, quality and installation, we offer these services either direct or through a network of strategically placed global agents.
“While on that topic if there are any companies interested in working with us, particularly in North America, please don’t hesitate to contact me via our website.”
In a statement, the company said it had “raised the bar in the storage tank industry by having the vast majority of its products accredited to industry standards including ISO 9001; LPCB; FM Global; and WRAS, while manufacturing facilities are capable of meeting AWWA standards. New approvals such as NSF 61 will be pursued as a result of the investment in the new facility”.
Simon Scott, Balmoral Tanks’ exports sales director, said: “I have worked extensively with various companies around the world but have never experienced such a focus on customer service than that practised by Balmoral.
“A commitment to personnel development and the finest available manufacturing plant means that we consistently deliver on our brand promise of being ‘not just another tank company.”
