Applelec expand antistatic LED assembly room
The first stage of Applelec’s self-financed 2700 square foot expansion to its Bradford head office has been completed with the first of three floors now operational.
Floor one is devoted to LED Light Sheet production and features a relocated LED antistatic assembly room, which delivers increased floor space and is fully dedicated to the manufacture and testing of Applelec’s award winning product. The room is designed to ensure contamination from atmospheric dust is eliminated before LED modules are embedded within the lighting unit which is now supplied with a three year warranty.
Ian Drinkwater, Applelec’s managing director, states: ‘The opening of the expanded antistatic room comes hot on the heels of our Leeds factory opening. We are continuing to invest in the facilities and equipment owned by Applelec to ensure we continue to meet growing demand for our product range and manufacturing services.’
Applelec’s Bradford building expansion is divided across three floors with a new showroom planned for the second floor due to be opened this summer. The showroom will be furnished by reusing elements of Applelec’s exhibition stands to minimise waste. A well deserved staff relaxation room takes up the top floor, featuring Applelec’s stress-busting snooker table.
The Bradford expansion follows the recent opening of a second factory which delivers 8000 square feet of manufacturing space in Leeds.
