Machinery experts, Haffner Murat Ltd have just commissioned a new 37,000 sqm purpose-built factory in Istanbul, Turkey, to support the company’s continued growth. Dave Thomas, Managing Director of Haffner Murat said: “The need to expand our manufacturing facility is a clear indication of the continued success of Haffner Murat and will help further improve our production efficiencies for our rapidly growing machines.”
The new Istanbul factory expansion comes hot on the heels of an ambitious head office expansion programme which has seen the company’s Staffordshire headquarters double in size too. Completed in late 2019, the new facility provides a quicker flow through for the company’s machines along with new areas for machinery testing, painting and quality control. The new UK factory facility has also provided additional space for machine assembly and testing while providing a quicker turnaround and improved efficiencies. The expanded Staffordshire site also houses a new office and superb customer meeting facilities.
Both the Staffordshire expansion and new Istanbul production facility are a testament to Haffner Murat’s continued success. Dave said: “We’ve seen our business increasing steadily for some time as more fabricators turn to us for their new and reconditioned machinery requirements. It is very important to us that our customer experience is excellent and the new Istanbul factory, coupled with the expansion at our UK headquarters will allow us to continue offering an outstanding level of service as well as providing additional capacity for further expansion as our business continues to grow.”
Expansion on this scale in this economic climate is noteworthy, but Haffner Murat’s continued success in offering a range of machines that make a tangible difference to fabricators is something that is reflected in their growing business.
The new Istanbul manufacturing facility is due to be completed in August 2020.
