Don Whitley Scientific recently moved into new premises in Bingley, West Yorkshire. As expected, the move was completed in an efficient manner that has enabled the majority of our work to continue without interruption.
The first example of this is our first set of Whitley Workstations have been manufactured, tested and dispatched from our new workplace. On Monday, 2nd July, these first cabinets manufactured at our new premises went on final test. Only two weeks after moving to Bingley, these three DG250s are almost ready to be shipped to customers: two to Hua Yue in China and one to The University of Leeds. As mentioned this required a great deal of hard work from all involved to make sure Victoria Works was ready in time to get products out the door so quickly.
A short while after most people started working at Victoria Works, it was time to get the specialist hauliers in to move the CNC machine shop department to Bingley. This was a large scale operation given the size and scale of the machines used by the department. However the move was managed well and they are now up and running in their new area, which offers a lot more space compared to what was available in Shipley.
Don Whitley Scientific has already welcomed various visitors to the new premises, where a new showroom is used to provide visitors with the experience of using DWS products first-hand. Tours of the premises are provided to give visitors a chance to see how the different departments work together to design, manufacture and service a comprehensive product range.
