Numac Invests for the Future

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2015

prod_office_1At a difficult time for the oil & gas industry, many businesses in the sector are struggling just to keep going. But at Numac’s Northern England base, the company is continuing to build for the future, looking ahead not with trepidation but ambitious plans for expansion.

New improved facilities

Numac has just completed the creation of a new production office at its Cheshire site, as Phase 1 of a wider investment in its facilities. The space has been designed to provide an improved working environment for staff and better integration between office-based processes and the shop floor to maximise efficiency.

Moving forward

Phase 2 will be achieved over the next two years, with important groundwork already in place. Numac has signed off on the purchase of land adjacent to the current facility, with the intention of expanding the shop floor by 50%, providing a significant increase in capacity.

Investment in facilities will also enable Numac to extend its highly successful apprenticeship schemes, which have been developed over the past decade to deliver cutting-edge on-site training that benefits recruits, the company and clients alike. Half of the firm’s current workforce joined through this route, which ensures they have the specialist technical expertise and understanding of Numac’s principles to operate to the very highest standards.

The team at Numac is confident that by acting now, it maintains its long-term investment plans and will be ideally placed to meet the needs of clients whatever the industry climate.

Managing Director Andrew McLaren says: “Although the oil & gas industry is in the middle of a tough time economically, we are confident in the future, and feel this is the right time to invest, ensuring that we are ready and able to fulfil our customers’ requirements as things start to pick up in the coming months and years.”
