Plans approved for factory extension at Armacell site

Thermal and acoustic insulation materials manufacturer Armacell has received planning permission for a new extension development to increase floor space and production capacity at their UK factory located on Mars Street, Oldham.

Tom McCreight, Plant Manager at the site says: “This is an extremely exciting development and investment in the future of manufacturing for Armacell in the UK. The extension will deliver a much needed increase in capacity and also significantly improve our logistics and despatch operations. This will ultimately help us to better meet the current and anticipated demands of our distribution partners.”

The planned single storey extension building will house a new state of the art equipment for its Armaflex pipe insulation product range and creates additional space for optimisation of logistics operations. To this end, a large covered loading bay area and a one way system layout are being created to improve site access and allow for lorries to enter and exit the plant without any reversing required.

The development will also provide additional waiting bays and space to reduce the impact of noise and disruption to surrounding residential properties, with delivery vehicles having easier and faster access to the despatch area in future.
