Blackburn Sales & Service Centre is better in every way

Blackburn Sales & Service Centre is better in every way

Monday 7th January 2013

Following a complete internal gutting and top quality reconstruction, plus a major exterior refurbishment, the newly opened Thorite Sales and Service Centre in Blackburn is ready to offer local customers the highest levels of both pneumatic products choice and engineering expertise available in the North West.

Thorite is the UK's biggest compressed pneumatic products and process systems distributor and has operated the premises in Blackburn's Forrest Street since 1993, marking this year as the Centre's 20th anniversary. However, the company's rapidly expanding product range and increasing numbers of specialist support service personnel meant the Centre has struggled for space in recent years.

The complete refurbishment has transformed the original building and created a smart new showroom and private consultation area, better product displays, increased stock holding and vastly improved car parking. In addition new services are on offer, including compressor repairs and an on-site hydraulic hose manufacturing and replacement facility.

Speaking of the Centre's improvements Alan Donkersley, Thorite's Sales Director said: "I've taken a great deal of personal interest in overseeing the changes at our Blackburn Centre and am delighted with the end results. This is the third of our ten regional Centres to undergo recent refurbishment and strengthen Thorite's unique identity and capabilities within its sales area. This isn't just about strong corporate branding, but mainly helps differentiate us within the market as the local quality supplier that really focuses on every aspect of compressed air systems for industrial and workshop applications, backed by our huge selection of pneumatic products. I'm confident our local customers will welcome the opportunity to visit us and discuss their individual requirements in the quiet surroundings of our new meeting room, as well as benefiting from the extraordinary levels of engineering skills and knowledge embodied in our staff. The introduction of a local hydraulics replacement service should also make life easier for many new customers."

The Blackburn Sales and Service Centre is located at Unit 1, Forrest Street, Blackburn BB1 3BB and is open from Monday to Friday 8.00am to 5.00pm.
