2018 has seen us move to our new Wolverhampton premises.
Having been based on the same site for nearly 30 years, the growth we have achieved in both volume and technical expansion has required us to move to a new site. This offers us improved crane facilities and manufacturing capability. Still in Wolverhampton the transistion to our new site has been seamless and production continuous throughout. We welcome our customers to visit and see for yourselves the professional high quality base from which we operate.
We are pleased to announce that Richard Edwards has joined Luxtrade as Project Manager.
Richard has a background in Quality Control and sales of steel products into agricultural markets. His responsibilities will span enquiries through to final installation. The appointment of Richard strengthens our team and reinforces our objective to provide excellent service to all our customers.
We are pleased to announce the promotion of Julian Mountford to Managing Director.
Julian has been with Luxtrade for two years and extends his operational role to oversee all Luxtrade activities. He takes over from Richard Holland who will concentrate on strategy and business development, ensuring Luxtrade continues to deliver outstanding value, quality and technical excellence.
December 2014 saw us completing our most ambitious project to date.
The new Baggage Hall being built at Gatwick South Terminal to handle the Airbus A380 required a special steel flooring to meet exacting loading specifications and most importantly – Flatness.
We instigated a rapid R&D / Rapid prototype programme and delivered a hot dip galvanised product that exceeded all expectations.
The resulting production run of 1,100 panels covering 2,200m2 were all cut to size, pre-fabricated and installed to programme requirements.
As we announced last year we were awarded ISO 9001, one year on we are pleased to say we passed with flying colours our first review. Quality is assured at Luxtrade and supported with our CE marking and membership of the BCSA
