The focus was firmly on how to get the best out of the site and maximise its current assets. Following meticulous planning and discussions with various professional parties, the decision was made to house the new Diamond Dispersions manufacturing facility – The Milling Hall – within the existing warehouse on the site. A new warehouse was then built on new land north of the site, effectively doubling warehouse capacity.
Other additions and changes such as a new QC laboratory, pre-milling & pre-mixing area, improved welfare facilities, a canteen and offices as well as the construction of a second Effluent Treatment Plant (ETP) were also agreed as key parts of the project.
Work commenced to transform the site in August 2019, and we have put together a special timeline to inform and celebrate this latest commercial and operational milestone for Diamond Dispersions.
