  • Ab Fab prototyping at FabLab

    Thursday 9th February 2012

    Being a Bradford "born and bred" company Thorite is keen to play an active role in any local business initiative particularly as our MD Stephen Wright is currently the Bradford Chamber President. We are therefore very keen to support  the activities of The Bradford and Airedale Manufacturing Alliance (BAMA). BAMA, which is organised by Bradford Chamber exists to help manufacturers work together for mutual benefit.  This is achieved through networking, helping to develop new business opportunities, cooperative working, and providing expert advice and guidance. BAMA is also active in covering Industry news and local information, lobbying support for local issues and providing funding news.

    Thorite, the UK's biggest distributor of pneumatic products and process systems, is one of the latest group of successful companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record. The Bradford-based firm recently received repeat accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practise amongst UK contractors and which Thorite first gained in 2007.
