Whitford Corp.
P.O. Box 80
Elverson, PA, 19520

Press release date: November 6, 2012

Runcorn, UK. Whitford, makers of the world's largest, most com- plete line of fluoropolymer coatings, has moved its UK facility to a larger property to ac- commodate growth over the past years, as well as to provide room for continued expansion.

Whitford Ltd.'s new building is located only a few hundred meters from the old facil- ity, but boasts many improvements. The new site offers 78,000 sq ft (7,250 m2) of total space; twice that of the old building. The manufacturing space is 70% larger. The labo- ratory has 90% more space, and the office area has doubled.

Whitford has also made significant investments in state-of-the-art equipment in the new laboratory and quality-control areas. Additionally, extra space in the manufacturing area allows for improved efficiency, influenced by Lean Manufacturing Principles and a Kaizen culture. Updated stock-control systems have been developed to meet demand- ing (and growing) customer delivery expectations.

Says Martin Garnett, Managing Director of Whitford Ltd.: "With the additional space and new systems we have in place, our efficiency should increase significantly. It's a great step forward for us."

Adds Dave Willis, founder and president of Whitford: "The new facility reflects the good work Whitford Ltd. has done and continues to do. Here's to more of the same!"
