MAJOR demand from customers in automotive and white goods has helped a Black Country manufacturing specialist relocate, putting it on course for another record year.

Worcester Presses, which provides a range of mechanical and hydraulic presses and coil processing equipment for clients all over the UK, has completed a move from Stourbridge to a more modern facility in Peartree Lane, Dudley.

The new site features built-in offices, central stores, a large machine shop and a dedicated 6000 sq ft engineering area that is supporting the firm’s desire to offer more turnkey solutions on the equipment it supplies.

It marks a new era in the company’s 68 year history, as the relocation has paved the way for a new corporate identity and the appointment of Ivan Littlewood as Engineering Director.

He will be in charge of the management and control of Worcester Presses’ engineers, including in-house manufacture, commissioning of new machines and servicing.
