NAA Member Company News: Movetech UK moves forward with major site redevelopments
Movetech UK (part of the British Turntable Group) has successfully had its building plans approved for a brand new £500,000 redevelopment scheme at its head office site on Emblem Street in Bolton, Greater Manchester…
The planning application for the new manufacturing and headquarters facility was presented to Bolton Council earlier this year and has recently been approved by the boroughs planning department, much to the delight of Tim Entwistle, Movetech UK’s managing director. Tim said: “With the successful planning application now in place, we can now move forward with this project, the biggest infrastructure redevelopment since the company began business.”
“We have come a long way since we first started trading back in 1959, initially as Bolton Turntable. The company was founded on a solitary request for a car showroom turntable by my late grandfather John Entwistle senior. Since then, Movetech UK has continued to grow and develop at a rapid pace and we have seen our portfolio of products and materials handling expertise expand beyond all recognition of the original business plan.
“I often get asked if the company ever stops and just sits back and has a ‘break’, and quite simply my answer is always no, why would we? Our customers continually present us with challenges for new products and materials handling solutions and, because we aim to please, we must strive to progress. Research and development has been at the core of our success to date and this major redevelopment is consequently vital for future progression.”
