New Thorite Headquarters: Now Open!

Thorite have now relocated from their former head office of 50 years in Laisterdyke, to a brand-new UK Headquarters, showroom and trade counter, located near the centre of Bradford.

Thorite House
Hillam Road
Bradford, BD2 1QN

Telephone: 01274 663471

All other existing contact details at Thorite remain the same.

Our new, purpose-built 44,000 sq.ft Headquarters and Bradford Sales & Service Centre will house:

  • £6 million of compressed air and fluid power stock from world-class brands
  • Compressor plant purchase, hire and rental
  • Expert technical advice
  • Systems design and installation
  • Comprehensive aftersales support
  • Specialised training courses

All this is on the one site, giving you a complete one-stop-shop experience and even greater choice for all your fluid power needs.

You can also take advantage of:

  • Ample, free parking - and no steps!
  • Complimentary tea and coffee when you come and visit us

In 2019 Thorite had a turnover of almost £20 million, but with ambitious future growth plans, this move provides a great foundation for continued success.
