Atlantic Pumps move to new manufacturing and research hub
Following several years of phenomenal growth, Chesterfield-based Atlantic Pumps have moved to a new 1.25-acre site.
The premises brings together Atlantic’s Chesterfield and Sheffield operations and creates a new manufacturing and research hub - placing the company at the front of pump innovation and fluid management related supply to the quarry and recycling industries in both the UK and abroad.
The hub, which is situated on Carrwood Road in the Sheepbridge Industrial Estate on the outskirts of the town, will allow Atlantic Pumps to increase manufacturing output and house even greater stocks.
It will also allow Atlantic to develop their Audex, SlurryPro, Gromatex and EnviroHub brands.
EnviroHub is a control system used to monitor, treat, and report on water discharge quality. With increasingly stringent environmental standards being applied to quarries and construction sites, a robust monitoring system such as EnviroHub plays a vital role. EnviroHub made its industry debut in late 2020 and is now experiencing huge interest from the construction and quarrying sectors.
The move to the new site, coupled with significant year-on-year growth, has already seen the creation of several new jobs at the company in the first half of 2021.
Talking about the move to the new premises, Managing Director Andy Smith said “This move is very much the next step of our journey in supporting our customers and is vital for maintaining the service levels which have driven our growth.
“It enables us to make customers lives easier and offer more sound, sensible solutions to pumping challenges in the quarry and recycling industries.
“Over the coming months and years, we’ll also be working closely with local businesses, business leaders and investing in people, as we continue to help contribute to the economic and industrial growth of Chesterfield, Derbyshire and the surrounding region."
