STUDLEY CELEBRATES ENGINEERING A NEW FACTORY
 
Studley Engineering set to officially open new factory.

A Merseyside engineering company which has gone from strength to strength over the past 32 years is celebrating its latest success.

Studley Engineering, who are one of the region's leading mechanical and electrical engineering companies, will celebrate the official opening of its new factory on Knowlsey Industrial Park on Friday 20th March, when local MP George Howarth and the Mayor of Knowsley Cllr Frank Walsh, will help the 200-strong business look “back to the future”.

Apprentices have been a growing part of Studley since 1983 and current ones will be working with some of the company's key suppliers in giving demonstrations of the company's work in M&E projects and maintenance and shutdown services in the petro chemical, chemical, pharmaceutical, energy,  nuclear, food and drink, paper and utilities sectors.

At 60,000ft2, the new factory is three times the size of the company's former premises on Liverpool's Vulcan Street and a far cry from the barn in which the company was founded by its current management, including technical director Neil Brierton, himself a former apprentice.

The engineering business was further enhanced with an established electrical company more than three years ago, which provides electrical, control, instrumentation and maintenance services to the industrial, utilities, infrastructure, environmental, commercial and health sectors.

Some of the company's staff will show Mr Howarth, Cllr Walsh and customers around the site, demonstrating training and safety with the help of several exhibitors. A “Back to the future” DeLorean car, which was coming to the end of its journey at about the same time as Studley Engineering was just beginning theirs, will also be on show.

John Hyland, managing director, said: “We are delighted to be celebrating this landmark occasion together with our customers and the apprentices who have helped to make all this possible. This new site will enable the company to continue to move forward and provide further expansion for all parts of our business.”
