join igus for a whirlwind tour of their newly-expanded UK facility
5 December 2017
In this featured video take a look around the newly-expanded igus facility during its official opening. A six-figure sum has been invested in the expansion, which will not only create more space for current engineering but will also allow the company to add significantly to its workforce in the future. Deputy Mayor of Northampton, Councillor Tony Ansell formally cut the ribbon with managing director, Matthew Aldridge.
The engineering support facility has almost doubled in size from 672sqm to 1,000sqm with the creation of a new upper floor that will accommodate a growing sales and technical support team, while freeing up ground-floor space for the engineering team to meet demand for fully assembled products.
As you will see, unlike many manufacturing environments, igus operates in an open-plan workspace, which is designed to encourage employee engagement, collaboration and sharing of ideas. Almost 20 different nationalities are represented within igus’ diverse workforce. The company also runs a number of initiatives to support young engineers, including an apprenticeship programme and provision of products to students and researchers working on projects ranging from hyperloop and robotics to motor racing and medicine.
