Proposed move of Packaged Plant Solutions

Baxi Heating UK has proposed moving its Packaged Plant Solutions business from its current site in Milton Keynes to the company’s much larger manufacturing site in Bamber Bridge, near Preston, Lancashire.

Baxi’s heating products are all warehoused in Preston, so the company will be significantly reducing transportation and therefore its carbon footprint by manufacturing packaged plant rooms and skids of heating equipment at the same site.

This proposal, if implemented following consultation, will, regrettably, result in a number of job losses and the closure of the Milton Keynes site. However, it will also mean that a number of jobs will be redeployed at Preston. This reorganisation will consolidate and focus Baxi’s manufacturing, operational expertise, assembly and distribution footprint as a single site Centre of Excellence.

The company believes that by consolidating its manufacturing activities onto one site, it can be better placed to meet the many challenges and opportunities that changes to the UK heating market presents as it moves towards a zero-carbon future.

Whitepaper tackles legionella risk

Low occupancy rates in commercial buildings could be leading to a ticking time bomb of water quality issues according to Guardian Water Treatment.

To help building owners take the right steps to prevent these issues, in particular legionella, the company has launched a new whitepaper – Locked down but not forgotten.

In the whitepaper, Guardian draws on its own data from over 30,000 samples taken from commercial buildings, predominantly in London, over a six-month period starting from April 2020 (when the first lockdown began).
