Moog Industrial Group unveiled its brand new purpose built production facility in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, UK. The new facility will support existing high performance motion control engineering, design, manufacturing and service both globally as well as in the UK.
The new building accommodates approximately 100 people, of which 60% are employed in either engineering or production roles. Moog Aircraft Group continues to operate nearby from their own facility.
The new building will deliver at least 2215 m² (7267 ft²) of manufacturing space with an additional 1863 m² (6112 ft²) of office space to support both hydraulic and electric motion control applications and service in industrial markets such as motorsport, test, industrial automation, and energy, whilst providing sufficient capacity for future expansion. In addition it will accommodate support roles such as, IT, Sales, HR and Marketing.
Chris Curr, Entity Manager, Moog said “Space in our former facility became constrained as our business expanded with high-end engineering projects. Our new facility will bring everyone together in one building, enabling us to provide our workforce with a modern and comfortable working environment in line with our company culture, whilst maintaining our high level of customer focus.”
Moog is well-known in the UK as the designer and manufacturer of the equipment that controls the centre court’s retractable roof at Wimbledon and as a leader in motion control products for Formula 1 racing cars. In addition, Moog also provides high performance solutions, products and services for a variety of machines and equipment. The company, which is a major employer in the area, has been operating out of the UK since 1968.
