Electro Mechanical Systems opens new factory07 April 2020

Mechatronics supplier Electro Mechanical Systems (EMS) has announced the opening of its new 40,000 square foot factory in Dorset.

Enterprise House in Holton Heath will provide EMS with an increase in space and facilities. The building, situated on a two acre site, is said to be an improvement on the previous facility, where the evolution of the business resulted in the company working from multiple units.

Furthermore, in line with its commitment to customer service, the new location will also have improved research and development and in-house testing capability, as well as extended conference facilities.

MD Stewart Goulding says: “As a Dorset based business since 1953, it was important to us to further invest in the local community that has served us so well for nearly 70 years. Located just seven miles from our current position and easily accessible by road and public transport, this was a vital component in our decision making process to ensure we retained our highly skilled workforce.

“Furthermore, the rise of Industry 4.0 and its associated technologies allows production lines to flow and communicate more seamlessly than ever before. Our scope stretches from the supply of proprietary motors, gearheads, encoders and actuation systems, right through to bespoke design and manufacture of complete drive systems.

“The new facility will not only provide an increased working area that will boost operational efficiency, but it also supplies us with the perfect opportunity to invest further in new technologies that will help us to deliver an even better service.”

Environmental sustainability has also been considered, with solar panels on the factory roof and the installation of new electric vehicle charging points in the car park.
