Major Makeover And Expansion For Huddersfield Sales & Service Centre

Monday 16th May 2016

Following a complete internal strip-out and top quality reconstruction, plus an exterior refurbishment, the recently re-opened Thorite Sales and Service Centre in Huddersfield now offers local customers the best choices in fluid power products and engineering expertise available in the area. In addition Thorite has re-located its specialist process control panel manufacturing department to the site, which provides much needed additional space to expand the panel build area.

Thorite is the UK’s biggest independent distributor of pneumatic products and process systems and has operated the premises in Huddersfield’s Barge Street support service since 1974. However, the company’s rapidly expanding product range and increasing numbers of specialist personnel meant the Centre urgently needed better facilities.

The complete refurbishment has transformed the original building and created a smart new showroom and private consultation area, comprehensive product displays, increased stock holding and better parking facilities, staffed by a supervisor, three internal sales personnel and an external Key Account Manager. The refurbishment has also enabled the Huddersfield Centre to now provide servicing and repairs for a complete range of compressors, along with stocks of hydraulic fittings and accessories, plus “while you wait” hydraulic hose manufacture/ replacement for customers in the local area.

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 Huddersfield Sales & Service Centre and I’m really impressed with the end results. This is the latest of our ten regional Centres to undergo refurbishment and strengthen the impact of Thorite’s recently rebranded corporate identity and capabilities within its sales area, ably supported by our £3million+ stocks 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 benefitting from the extraordinary levels of engineering skills and knowledge embodied in our Huddersfield staff”.

The Huddersfield Sales and Service Centre is located at: 6 Barge Street, Huddersfield, HD1 3LG. Open Monday to Friday 8.00am to 5.00pm. Phone: 01484 534245 Email: Web: For further information contact: Ross Gowler, Thorite Marketing and Engineering Services Director Email: Tel: 01274 663471
