Today, 18 February 2020, Baxi Heating UK has announced proposals to move its Packaged Plant Solutions business from its current site in Milton Keynes to the company’s much larger manufacturing site in Bamber Bridge, near Preston, Lancashire.
Our heating products are all warehoused in Preston, so we will be significantly reducing transportation and therefore our carbon footprint by manufacturing packaged plant rooms and skids of heating equipment at the same site.
This proposal, if implemented following consultation, will, regrettably, result in a number of job losses and the closure of the Milton Keynes site. However, it will also mean that a number of jobs will be redeployed at Preston. This reorganisation will consolidate and focus our manufacturing, operational expertise, assembly and distribution footprint as a single site Centre of Excellence.
We firmly believe that by consolidating our manufacturing activities onto one site, we can be better placed to meet the many challenges and opportunities that changes to the UK heating market presents as we move towards a zero carbon future.
