New building to help CHH embrace the next stage of growth
Work on CHH’s new 18,500 sq ft building is now almost complete and we are all excited about how the extra capacity will help drive the business forward. Providing much needed extra space for our growing Design, Engineering and Manufacturing Division, it will accommodate expansion and help CHH deliver our strategy for sustainable growth.
Adjoining our existing 55,000 sq ft facility, the building should be ready for occupation in October. It will prove critical in helping us develop our manufacturing capabilities and respond to robust customer demand. Once manufacturing moves into its its new home, our Managed Services division will expand their operations into the area it vacates, supporting its growing business in providing field service engineers with the consumables they need.
CHH is on an impressive growth trajectory, accelerated by our recent change of ownership and strategic direction. The Design, Engineering and Manufacturing Division is predicted to more than double its turnover this year, supporting digital infrastructure through the production of integrated systems, enclosures, active cabinet solutions and cable and loom assemblies. As well as benefiting from the growth of the altnet sector, the division is ideally placed to support a range of other sectors including rail, electric vehicles, medical, nuclear, and food and beverage
“The new building will allow us to exploit new opportunities and take the business to another level”, says The Design, Engineering and Manufacturing Division’s Managing Director Liz Scott. “We are really looking forward to moving in and delivering on our plans. We are looking at several initiatives including lean training, the adoption of new technology and upskilling existing staff to respond to customer demand.”
There are plans to increase the size of the maintenance and engineering department and help customers manage their supply chains by holding more stock. The building will also incorporate new offices, training areas and meeting rooms. Staff will have access to social space and a new canteen. There are solar panels on the roof, providing access to renewable energy in line with CHH’s sustainability strategy, securing growth by supporting the triple bottom line of people, profit and planet.
