• Dams opens new manufacturing facility

        • Dams Furniture has opened its new, multi-million-pound manufacturing facility at its head office site in Knowsley, Merseyside.

          The new 85,000 sq. ft (7,900 sq. m) building consolidates the four sites that Dams currently operate from on Knowsley Industrial Park into one larger site which will bring all the company’s manufacturing and assembly together on one full site alongside their head office, showroom, warehouse and distribution centre.

          Chris Scott, Managing Director said, “Dams have been a big champion of UK manufacturing ever since my father set up the business over 50 years ago, and we’re investing back in the business, so we can better support the needs of our customers. This new production facility marks the start of the next phase of our development as a business and we are really looking forward to working in the new space over the coming weeks, months and years.

          “Having all our operations on one larger site will not only boost our UK manufacturing capabilities and reduce our lead times on made-to-order products, but it will also create dozens of new jobs which will have a positive effect on the local and wider community. Not just in the short term but for years to come.”

          Dams head office site uses waste wood from the wood factory to power their central heating system. Two biomass boilers heat the production facilities and warehouse space reducing Dams demand for oil and gas, whilst at the same time helping to improve waste management, with over 95 per cent being converted.

          The manufacturing facility is also complete with a 'hub' area for Dams employees to enjoy on break times with Foosball and Ping Pong tables, outdoor dining facilities, and the iconic red British phone box to make any personal calls.

          Dams always encourages its customers to go and pay them a visit to see and experience their products first hand, and for a tour of the operations, so feel free to book an appointment with one of the Dams sales team if you’d like to go along to Dams HQ.
