The property is now the new global bolting innovation centre for Atlas Copco, one of the world’s leading providers of innovative bolting solutions.
It has 46,000 sq ft of production and office space for 80 employees and the company expects this number to grow as the operation expands following its move from West Bromwich.
The Atlas Copco group was formed over 28 years ago and the company designs, manufactures and distributes a wide range of class leading hydraulic bolt tightening tools. It bought the former Tentec bolt tightening business in West Bromwich in 2013.
The state-of-the-art facility incorporates research and development, engineering design, production control, sales support and administration, CNC machinery, quality control plus assembly and test facilities providing global support to its worldwide customer base.
Midlands property company A & J Mucklow Group provided a full end to end design-led solution for Atlas Copco delivering a new facility incorporating tenant fit-out.
Totalling 15 acres, Mucklow Park is located at the gateway to i54 South Staffordshire, north of Wolverhampton, which is one of the UK’s best connected advanced manufacturing hubs.
It has superfast broadband and i54 is already home to manufacturers Jaguar Land Rover, Moog, Eurofins, ISP, and ERA.
"The new Atlas Copco facility will further enhance our UK footprint with a global centre of excellence to support our worldwide client base within the Energy segment business area.
It will also provide the platform to further grow the business where our standard products are used extensively in the oil and gas, power generation industries."
