To provide the additional capacity needed for anticipated business growth, U.K.-based engineering company Renishaw has acquired a new manufacturing facility and submitted planning applications to expand three existing facilities.
The acquired facility is the soon-to-be-vacant Bosch manufacturing plant in Miskin, South Wales. It offers 461,000 square feet of factory space, including a 10,000-square-foot clean room facility, on a 193-acre site. The purchase will be completed on September 30 once the existing Bosch operations are relocated.
Additionally, the company is in discussions with Stroud District Council regarding a possible phased, 225,000-square-foot extension to its headquarters site at New Mills near Wotton-under-Edge. Other plans in the works include a possible 50,000-square-foot extension of the company’s healthcare products facility in Charfield and a possible 35,000-square-foot expansion of its machine shop at Stonehouse.
