Royston, Herts, United Kingdom, 2008/05/01 - LDS Test and Measurement has commissioned a new, purpose built factory and headquarters for its test systems and instrumentation business. The build is nearing completion, and the move into the new manufacturing facility will start this June.
LDS Test and Measurement has commissioned a new, purpose built factory and office building for its Global Headquarters and test systems manufacture and development in Royston, UK.
Derek Read, Managing Director, said: “LDS Test and Measurement are a long established major Royston employer, and we are delighted to keep our worldwide headquarters in the town, where many of our highly-skilled local work-force reside”. The facility will house vibration test systems production staff, research and development, sales, engineering and service teams for LDS Test and Measurement, as well as the HQ support staff in IT, Finance, Supply and HR.
The new facility allows for an increased production capacity and LDS Test and Measurement will be using this opportunity to further integrate ‘lean techniques’ into their manufacturing processes. The factory will incorporate the latest manufacturing technologies for both mechanical and electrical build, as well as an environmentally controlled area for the production of critical components including spare parts.
LDS Test and Measurement is investing in 3 large test cells within the new facility. These will allow the test and development of their largest products, such as those used for testing satellites, as well as other multi-shaker systems.
The facility will have an extensive training suite, where LDS Test and Measurement can deliver test system, instrument and application training for key customers to help them more effectively validate their own products.
The build is nearing completion, and the move into the new facility will start this June. LDS Test and Measurement are proud to be investing in a world-class facility, and to continue their 40 year association with Royston and the Cambridge region.
