5000m2 New Production facility opened

9th June, 2021

This 5000m² new production facility at WFEL LIMITED Stockport has been formally opened! Contracted by the UK Ministry of Defence to build ‘Boxer’ mechanised infantry vehicles and military bridges at their Stockport site.

HBL provided consultancy for the project. This included the construction of two new portal frame buildings and substantial civils works, due to the existing level differences across the site and to improve the existing vehicular traffic and drainage arrangements at the facility.

Constructed to a very tight programme, our collaborative approach, adopted by the design team and the contractor, ACS Construction Group Ltd, in conjunction with the client, ensured the project was delivered on programme and on budget. The UK Minister for Defence Procurement, Jeremy Quinn, formally opened the new production facility, which is hoped to create 120 new jobs in the Stockport area.
