Thorite wins installation contract for Norgren's new Engineering Advantage Centre

Tuesday 15th October 2013

Thorite announces the award of a major contract to install a complete compressed air pipework system in Norgren's new 104,000 sq ft Engineering Advantage Centre at Fradley Business Park, near Lichfield in Staffordshire.

The three-month contract awarded by main contractor Clegg Construction Ltd was won in a highly competitive tender process. It will see various pipework ring mains at pressures varying between 7 and 400 bar installed, carrying compressed air to every part of the new facility which is due for completion in December 2013.

Alan Donkersley, Thorite's Sales Director said: "I'm extremely proud that Thorite has been entrusted to use its unique experience and specialist engineering skills to supply and install the compressed air aspects at Norgren's prestigious new premises. Thorite is a major Norgren distributor and we have worked in close partnership for many years. I would like to thank everyone at Thorite who has been involved in bringing our endeavours to a successful conclusion."

Norgren is an international leader in the design and manufacture of pneumatic motion and fluid control technologies. Once fully operational, the Engineering Advantage Centre will house manufacturing, research, sales and administrative functions for the company which serves global customers in the rail, commercial vehicle, life sciences, energy, food & beverage and industrial automation sectors.
