Fernox opens new UK manufacturing facility
Fernox has opened its new chemical water treatment manufacturing facility in Wantage, Oxfordshire. Bringing employment opportunities to the local area and supply chain benefits, the new facility has increased production capacity and flexibility.
Committed to serving the UK and export markets post-Brexit, the opening of the new facility has improved production efficiency and enhanced stock control procedures. This has already resulted in shorter ordering times and a more efficient service for customers.
The new facility manufactures the complete Fernox chemical water treatment range, including the industry-leading Protector F1 as well as the innovative inhibitor and active dispersant package, Filter Fluid+ Protector. The company’s high quality chemical water treatment portfolio – which includes everything from inhibitors, cleaners and limescale remedies to solar, air and ground source heat transfer fluids - remains tried and trusted by professional installers and contractors around the world.
Ernie McDonald, global director at Fernox, says: “The new 24-hour production facility has a workforce of 240 employees that allows us to offer the highest quality service levels and be responsive to individual customer needs.
“As we continue to develop innovative chemical water treatments for the UK and export markets, the Wantage facility will be crucial to grow the local economy and enhance supply chain capability.”
