UK bandsaw blade manufacturer unveils plans for £10m expansion project

Dakin-Flathers, manufacturer of Saw37C bandsaw blades, has unveiled plans to expand their existing state-of-the-art facility by over 7,500m2 covering three floors at its current premises in West Yorkshire, England.

Due for completion in early 2023, the Featherstone site will allow Dakin-Flathers to service its customers, in over 100 countries globally, more effectively. The new scheme will allow the company to maximise production capacity and improve efficiencies across the product range.

The new extension, which can accommodate over 150 employees, will also boast charging points for multiple electric vehicles, improved staff facilities, flexible workspaces and a much larger warehouse that utilises new picking and storage systems.

Oliver Garside, Managing Director of Dakin-Flathers, explains: “Dakin-Flathers has enjoyed rapid and sustained growth, doubling in size three times over the last 20 years, which has led us to become a market leader in our sector.

“We've invested heavily, and will continue to do so, in the business and our employees. Our continued growth will be supported by a range of exciting new ventures and an investment programme in excess of £10m over the next 24 months. These really are exciting times for Dakin-Flathers, our employees, customers, and for UK manufacturing.”

Dakin-Flathers’ growing green credentials will also benefit from an expansion of our PV solar range. Renewable energy generation will increase from 265,000kWh per annum to more than 900,000kWh, making their factory as environmentally efficient as possible.
