Torin-Sifan, which manufactures energy efficient fan technology for the European air movement industry, is flying the flag for British manufacturing by investing in excess of £2million in a new production facility, creating 25 new jobs.
The EC Manufacturing & Technology Centre, in Swindon, will produce EC (electronically commutated) motor, fan and blower products. And the new building will enable an expansion programme focused on delivering energy efficient, quiet and controllable air movement solutions.
North Swindon MP, Justin Tomlinson, and the Mayor of Swindon, Cllr Teresa Page, officially opened the building at Torin-Sifan’s Investing in British Manufacturing launch event, at which guests toured the new facility.
The 25,000sq ft facility houses production lines, a sales and marketing suite and a staff welfare area. The company’s expansion follows five decades of manufacturing in Swindon with the new facility allowing the company to increase EC production by over 20%, whilst continuing with the manufacture of its traditional product ranges at its existing Greenbridge HQ.
Neil Sproston, Managing Director of Torin-Sifan, said: “As we celebrate 50 years of British manufacturing and innovation, we are delighted to open a world-class manufacturing centre here in Swindon. At Torin-Sifan we are committed to producing high quality innovative products and lowering carbon emissions, British manufacturing allows us to deliver this for our customers.
“This expansion of our manufacturing capabilities means we are even better able to offer our global customer base cutting edge air movement technology and improved facilities will benefit both customers and staff. To be able to manufacture successfully in the UK is testament to the quality of our products and to the skills base here.”
Speaking at the event Justin Tomlinson MP said “I am delighted that Torin-Sifan, a leader in the field of manufacturing and technology, has taken the decision to further invest in Swindon a real boost for our local economy.”
