• Dams invests in new UK manufacturing facility

        • With the steel framework starting, Dams has announced that work is well underway building a new multi-million-pound UK manufacturing facility at its head office site in Knowsley, Merseyside.

          The new 85,000 sq ft (7,900 sq m) building is due to open in October 2018, consolidating the 4 sites that Dams currently operate from on Knowsley Industrial Park, into one larger site to improve operational efficiencies and boost its UK manufacturing capabilities. The investment will also ensure that Dams can reduce lead times on its portfolio of made-to-order products.

          Over 80 per cent of products in the Dams product portfolio are already manufactured in the UK. In 2017, Dams manufacturing operations made a ‘record’ number of furniture products with the wood factory producing over 1.8 million wooden panels and the upholstery department producing over 2,000 upholstered products every week.

          All products are designed to comply with the latest European and British quality standards. Products are also tested by FIRA which provides reassurance to customers that Dams products have attained an excellence that has been independently verified.

          Chris Scott, Dams Managing Director said, "we’re a proud UK manufacturer and during 2018 Dams are making record investments expanding our UK manufacturing facilities with new machinery, state-of-the-art equipment and additional trained personnel to manufacture the extended product portfolio and keep pace with demand.

          “As a manufacturer who manages our own production plant in the UK, this means that Dams can adapt production levels to reflect sales trends, ensuring that all standard items are consistently available from stock.”
