Aberdeen-based Highland Electroplaters Limited has re-opened their Kirkhill Industrial Estate facility today after completing £750,000 of major refurbishment works following a devastating fire in July 2018.

The new facility has been designed with safety, ergonomics and the environment at the forefront with key investments meaning “technology has moved forward by 20 years” according to Chris Byles, Finance Director at Highland Electroplaters. “The factory has undergone a major refurbishment and we are delighted to re-open our facility today in what is a new dawn for our organisation.

“The safety and working conditions of our team along with the environment and how we might reduce our carbon footprint were key considerations in the refurbishment planning stages.

A new roof and side cladding was fitted along with a firewall between the factory and warehouse.  New full-length panels fitted in the roof allow much more natural light which contributes to a better working environment for our team and our upgraded, more energy-efficient rectifiers and control panels are now housed in a completely separate area which means more spacious and safe working conditions. In addition, having our rectifiers and switch room isolated from the rest of the factory means all electrics are away from the steam and corrosive atmosphere of the factory so will not be subject to breakdowns due to the contamination from this environment.
