A brand-new manufacturing business has unveiled its new premises on Moss Industrial Estate in Leigh.
iDuct, which manufactures steel ducting for the exhaust, ventilation and air conditioning industries, has moved into a fully refurbished 20,000 sq ft unit on Moss Industrial Estate.
The already growing team manufactures and sells high quality LEV (Local Exhaust Ventilation) and HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) ducting supplies and has already achieved Made in Britain accreditation.
Grant Gledhill, iDuct’s Managing Director, said: “iDuct was born out of a desire to revolutionise and innovate the ducting supply industry by offering industry leading customer service and ensuring stock is ready when you need it. By utilising the latest in manufacturing technology we are able to offer highly competitive pricing with generous trade discounts.”
The on-site security and location of Moss Industrial Estate, on St. Helen’s Way in Leigh, was a deciding factor in choosing it for the location of iDuct.
Grant added: “At present, the majority of our customers are based in the North West region so easy access to Manchester and Liverpool, as well as Warrington and Wigan, is vital. But we do operate nationwide so access to the wider motorway network is also really important for our growth.
“To make sure we have products ready for when our customers need it, we have made a significant investment in our storage warehouses so that we are able to dispatch items for next day delivery or collection.
“We also have a trade counter on site for duct fitters and other tradespeople to pick up their ducting parts as well as other supplies and accessories needed for their project.”
As one of the older units on the estate, iDuct’s premises has been fully refurbished by Moss Industrial Estate, with energy efficient LED lights fitted throughout as part of the industrial estate’s mission to become carbon neutral.
Moss Industrial Estate is owned by 100-year-old family-run business, George Moss & Sons. The Industrial Estate is home to around 100 local businesses of varying sizes and industries and is currently working towards making the estate carbon neutral through a range of sustainability initiatives, including the refurbishment of its older units.
Last year, Moss Industrial Estate also announced it was supporting its tenants with the rising cost of living by lowering their energy costs through a £500k investment in solar panels.
Neill Wood, managing director of Moss Industrial Estate, said: “We are very pleased to welcome the iDuct team to Moss Industrial Estate. They have moved in to one of our larger units due to the storage and manufacturing space they need, which we have fully refurbished it to bring it up to modern standards.
“Our ultimate plan is to make the industrial estate carbon neutral and the refurbishment of this unit is part of a larger programme of works that is being undertaken on all of the older units across the estate. We wish iDuct every success in their new premises.”
