Radicon Gears Up For Elland Move

The Radicon business takes a major step forward and moves 6 miles into a modern, custom designed facility in Elland, West Yorkshire.

Online PR News – 10-December-2011 – – The head office move into the custom built facility, is a major step forward for the Radicon business, not only in the UK but as it continues to expand its global coverage.

The move is part of the continued investment into the business from the Elecon Engineering Group, Asia’s largest and fastest growing gear manufacturer, who bought the Radicon division from David Brown Gear Systems in November 2010.

The new facility is twice the size of the old Radicon facility and provides the ideal platform for Radicon to expand and incorporate an Engineered Products division. The move now enables the business to supply bespoke Engineered Products up to 6,000KNm to its growing, global customer base.

The move will also benefit the current standard product division within Radicon, which specialises in industrial gearboxes, geared motors and worm gears. Equally the larger factory has enabled further expansion of the rapidly growing Service & Repair division.

Chris Riley, General Manager at Radicon UK, explains:

"The move is fantastic news for the business and has been completed within budget and on time and I would personally like to thank everyone involved in the project. It’s a very exciting time for the Radicon business and this move provides us with the ideal opportunity to concentrate on aggressively growing our business.

Richard Irons, Global Business Development Manager, goes onto further explain

“Radicon has huge experience in the standard and modified, power transmission market and the move into offering large custom built gearboxes allows the business to apply our engineering know-how and design excellence to enhance our current offering to the customer. This development continues Radicon’s commitment to providing a more comprehensive range of products that bring real benefits to our growing customer base commented”.
