ABERDEEN, Scotland – Scottish company Balmoral Tanks has invested £10 million into a purposed designed factory in South Yorkshire and an upgrade to its manufacturing processes for its range of epoxy coated and concrete tanks.
The new facility, due to open its doors in Q4 2017, will have a new epoxy coating line, in-line shot blasting unit, latest laser cutting technology and fabrication facilities.
The company has design and production operations in Llantrisant, South Wales, and Barnsley, South Yorkshire, and has installations on major projects spanning Europe, North and South America, the Middle and Far East.
Allan Joyce, managing director at Balmoral Tanks, said: “Having built up a strong balance sheet over the years we are in the enviable position of being able to invest in new technology. As an engineering company at our core, we have designed a plant and installed processes that will be at the very forefront of coated tank technology.”
The company said the vast majority of its products are accredited to industry standards including ISO 9001; LPCB; FM Global; and WRAS, while manufacturing facilities are capable of meeting AWWA standards. New approvals such as NSF 61 will be pursued as a result of the investment in the new facility.
The group now employs approximately 500 people.
