WARRINGTON, England—Elastomer Engineering Ltd. is relocating from its base in Lymm, in the Warrington borough in Northwest England, to Leyland, about two hours north.
The move follows the engineering company's acquisition in July last year by Dexine Leyland Rubber Technology Ltd. The project already has seen the transfer of the polyurethanes production facility to Leyland, which was completed last December.
The relocation process was originally scheduled to be completed in 2021, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a decision was made to accelerate the transfer throughout the lockdown period, according to Managing Director Chris Turner.
As of July 13, all manufacturing activities are operational at the Leyland site and all materials will be dispatched from that location, Turner said. The Lymm site is scheduled to be closed by the end of July.
Sales Office Manager Julie Gardner will leave the company at the end of July, while Karl Cartwright will remain as sales manager. Tony Lowe, who previously served as quality manager, will become the business unit manager for molding.
