Knowsley dignitaries officially open new facility for Studley Engineering & Electrical

Local dignitaries have paid homage to a Merseyside engineering company which formally opened its new factory on Friday (March 20th).

The event at Studley Engineering on Knowsley Industrial Park was attended by the Rt Hon George Howarth MP, the Mayor of Knowsley Cllr Frank Walsh and the leader of Knowsley Council Cllr Ron Round.

In unveiling a plaque to commemorate the event, Mr Howarth recognised the company's commitment to apprenticeships since its formation 32 years ago, the current technical director Neil Brierton being a former apprentice himself.

As well as visiting exhibition stands from more than a dozen of Studley's suppliers, the dignitaries also took time out to admire a “Back to the future” DeLorean car before a buffet lunch with more than 100 customers, suppliers, staff and apprentices.

During the lunch Neil Brierton explained to the guests that the reason for the company's success was its philosophy in training and developing young talent, with more than 60 apprentices being recruited in recent years. Managing director John Hyland also thanked all who had supported the business over the past three decades.

Studley Engineering is one of the region's leading mechanical and electrical engineering companies, specialising in M&E projects, 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.
The original engineering business was complemented by an 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.
