Written by acdc on July 16, 2013>
But don’t worry they’ve not gone far! acdc have recently moved their Head Office to a new 8,375 sq. ft. building, just around the corner from their manufacturing facility. The new office which is 3 times the size of their previous one, offers significant room for future growth in line with the company’s ambitious goals. They have been designed to reflect the acdc brand and mirror the London studio and the clean lines and imagery of its exhibition stands; most recently seen at Lux Live and Light and Building.
Moving to this site means that acdc will remain in Barrowford (both office and manufacturing) for at least the next 5 years, which is an incredibly positive statement for both its employees and local business.
The existing offices at Innovation Works, will now be used to expand production and house the Design and Technical teams, who are very happy to escape the confounds of the double decker bus they have been working on for the past 3 years.
acdc’s manufacturing team currently operates from a 30,000 sq.ft. hi-tech, state of the art facility which is a successful blend of automation with manual processes to ensure high volume, high quality product delivery whilst maintaining flexible lead times on a wide variety of products. With the main office relocating to their new home, production is able to increase its capacity further, to meet the growing demands of the business.
Speaking about the move, Gareth Frankland, CEO commented “this is a really exciting time for acdc, and represents a huge step for us as we continue to invest in our growth and our future.”
acdc employ a highly skilled work force in excess of 110 individuals servicing all areas of the business with all products designed and manufactured in Lancashire. acdc now operates from three sites within the UK; with their head office and manufacturing facilities in the North West; whilst the majority of their sales engineers, showroom, and events can be found in the London Studio. acdc also has a strong global presence with an office in Dubai, and a distribution network of over 60 distributors covering 5 continents.
