Rotamec opens new South Wales facility at Pontypool
Published: 28 October 2019 - Sarah Mead
Electro-mechanical repair specialist, Rotamec, has opened a new facility in Pontypool, South Wales, to provide localised 24/7 maintenance and repair support to operators of engineered equipment. The new facility has a high capacity to meet demanding or time sensitive projects. This ensure customers in South Wales will benefit from Rotamec's expertise in rotating equipment, motor repairs, parts sourcing, gearbox repairs, machining and on-site services at industry beating lead times. Simon Brooks, Managing Director at Rotamec, comments: "Expanding our presence in South Wales was a logical step for Rotamec. We pride ourselves on offering a fast response to emergency breakdowns and completing projects to exacting deadlines, so moving to a larger facility in close proximity to our customers makes sense. It enables a faster response and reduced lead times - which has always been a cornerstone of our services."
The new South Wales facility is also a gateway to the full range of services offered by other Rotamec branches. Additional services such as machining and pump testing are supported by these service centres, but all can be accessed seamlessly via the South Wales facility. This allows operators to order machined or repaired components quickly compared to the extended lead times associated with OEM spares.
Councillor Richard Clark, Executive Member for Economy Skills and Regeneration was present at the opening of the site. The new facility will offer increased apprentice opportunities for young aspiring engineers in the local area. Dedicated on-site teams will be operating from the facility to increase maintenance support, and, consequently, uptime, for Welsh industry.
Simon continues: "Over the next few months we'll be expanding our on-site services teams to further optimise response times, along with hiring new apprentices. We urge any operators of engineered equipment aiming to improve uptime to get in touch with us."
