Aquavision quadruples space and adds staff
Aquavision, a pioneer of in-wall and waterproof televisions (see previous story on this website), has moved its headquarters, factory and warehouse to new larger premises in Stockport near Manchester.
The company outgrew its previous premises and now has a 10,000 sq ft facility – nearly four times larger than the previously. The relocation, says the company, follows a significant increase in business over the last 12 months
Aquavision has also taken on seven new members of staff including Phil Biggin who, as production manager, will be responsible for the new production staff, and Clare Boucher who joins the company as customer service and internal sales manager.
Alastair Benn, MD of Aquavision, commented: “Quadrupling the size of our premises means we will be able to achieve significant productivity improvements. We expect the benefits to be seen right across the business from improved workplace facilities such as heating, ventilation and natural light to dedicated R&D, service and production areas, to mechanical lifting equipment for larger screens and a loading area for 40ft articulated lorries.
“We needed premises that would give us the extra space to grow and accommodate both the increased business and additional staff. By the summer, we will also have completed our new in-house training facility and showroom. Over the coming months we will be announcing new Aquavision models and products together with a vigorous marketing plan and new website.”
