Telestack extend their production facility in-line with substantial global growth
The new £1.5m extension to the manufacturing facility where steel will be cut
Telestack Limited was established in May 1999, as the specialist materials handling division of Loughside Engineering which began business in 1985. They have grown into one of the key
players in the manufacture of mobile bulk material handling systems in the coal, mining and quarry industries, stockyard management, ports & inland terminals, power stations, rail yards, steel mills, cement kilns and many other bulk material handling industries.
Now employing over 150 skilled staff members from the local area they are investing heavily in both facilities and more staff to take Telestack to the next level. We caught up with Jonathan Brown, Manufacturing Manager who gave us a production tour, starting in a brand-new extension to the factory “We are just about to commission this new high-roof 12,000 sq ft £1.5m extension to the Telestack production facility, this new area will handle the first phase of cutting the steel by means of a fully automated process increasing efficiency and speed whilst reducing costs. Our design engineers select the desired program in the system, then the steel is loaded into the building via a specially designed loading bay onto rollers and then into the new high-speed multi- spindle drilling-milling machine. We keep as much as possible in house in terms of manufacturing and design, cutting, bending and fabricating. Nov 2018 - Issue 53
