continued growth in Europe and numerous new product introductions for the global market has created the need for additional space. Spellman added a 604 m² (6,500 ft²) extension to the existing 1,950 m² (21,000 ft²) facility.
In addition to the physical building extension, Spellman added a temperature controlled room for testing of sensitive, high performance products, a 150kW diesel back-up generator, and SAN data storage with replication capability of Spellman’s global data for disaster resilience. Specialty flooring (dissipative & insulated) has been added for handling of static sensitive devices and safely testing of high voltage products.
According to Dennis Bay, Managing Director, of Spellman’s UK Operations: “Over the past 10 years our UK operation has enjoyed amazing growth. Spellman’s European Headquarters houses engineering, assembly, test, sales, customer support and administration. Spellman UK has called Pulborough its “home” for over twenty years and we feel we have been a positive force in the local economy.
We have proven that high-tech can be designed, manufactured and exported globally from the UK. We are proud to contribute to Spellman’s global presence and business continuity plan while remaining committed to delivering the most reliable high voltage technology for our customer's critical applications.” Bay added, Our modern new facility with expanded physical and process capabilities leaves us well-positioned to continue as Spellman’s European anchor and launching pad for further growth.
