“Exceptional growth” across all markets has seen process control business Bürkert UK move to new headquarters.
The shift from Stroud to Cirencester gives the company more room for expansion, particularly of its training facilities and systems business.
“We have been setting the pace in key sectors of process markets for some time now and the move to a more flexible headquarters is the obvious result of this growth,” said general manager Paul Trevitt. “Against a backdrop of general economic austerity, Bürkert UK is growing year on year in key process sectors such as water and waste treatment, food and beverage, medical and biomedical, and also chemical.”
He said the move will enable the company to meet increasing demand for customer-specific training courses, which are “well oversubscribed” and specialist systems that are built in-house.
“What has proven pivotal to our success in the systems is our unique ability to combine process and laboratory automation, valve elements, sensors, flow meters, water treatment systems and networked communications into single source customised systems that deliver higher process efficiency and also higher yields with reduced wastage,” added Trevitt.
“We have also struck a chord with our ability to provide specific process control training to industry. Recently we have provided courses on steam and hygienic processing in the food and beverage and pharmaceutical industry, as well as mobile clinics that take our solutions-based approach to hygienic processing to much wider audiences.
“With our new facility we are able to expand these activities to meet the high levels of demand that we are experiencing.”
