New Sunderland premises for Salamander Pumps

Published:  21 June, 2010

BEDFORD: Salamander Pumped Shower Systems has made some significant investments over the last 18 months at both its main manufacturing unit in Sunderland and its head office in Bedford.

The new complex in Sunderland consists of an extensive single-storey manufacturing and warehousing building plus a two-storey office block. The custom built offices grant a much needed increase in space to both incorporate their relocated accounts team to their Sunderland site and to provide more space for recently increased research and development team.

The factory area has been designed for optimum operational efficiency as well as for improved staff facilities. The much larger area houses the research and development team, ample manufacturing space that will produce what is claimed to be the UK’s largest number of shower pumps, and a large quality control area where 100% of completed product is fully tested.

From the manufacturing plant the checked pumps pass to the Finished Goods area ready for dispatch on the seven-day delivery cycle guaranteed by the company.

The company employs 45 staff in the new Sunderland plant, a further 20 in the Bedford office and it was recently awarded ISO 9001 status for design, manufacture, sales and service support.
