In early 2013, Tygavac will be relocating to the Oldham Broadway Business Park, close to their current facility in Rochdale.
According to Tygavac, the newly acquired 126,000 sq ft building on a 6 acre site forms part of Airtech’s worldwide commitment to support growth in the aerospace, wind power, automotive, marine, printed circuit board and general composite industries.
Moving from its existing 35,000 sq ft facility will allow Tygavac to continue their planned investment into new equipment, enhanced R & D facilities and increased stockholdings. It will also support a growing workforce and an extended customer training programme. Kerry Lee, VP General Manager of Tygavac said “Expansion of this kind will give us the platform to pursue our strategy for growth and enable us to continue to support our customers and distributors with enhanced products and services.“
Tygavac says the expansion will allow it to meet its customers increasing demands and is seen as an important step in the servicing of its core markets.
