Westin Drives’ £1m-plus investment in new premises has attracted the attention of the local and national press.
The Huddersfield Examiner carried a three-page feature under the headline ‘Motor firm’s vision for the future’.
On the second page, under the heading ’Historic firm motors ahead with massive expansion’, Examiner business reporter Henryk Zientek gave a thorough account of our move to a new service centre on St Andrew’s Road.
While local readers were absorbing that story, readers of the Journal of the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades were also reading of our exciting development plans.
Its article begins: ‘From the outside, Westin Drives presents an attractive blend of old and new. At its heart is Grove Works, a 19th century former textile mill, whose carefully restored stone facade rises above a new, steel-clad service centre. Inside, its rebirth is expressed in a stylish mix of exposed brick and stone, white walls and contemporary furniture.
“This is the new home of the Huddersfield-based electro-mechanical engineering company. A few months ago, as part of a £1m-plus investment, it moved its team, equipment and stock from cramped premises with limited access to this spacious service centre set in a large courtyard.”
All the members of our team are delighted that our work and our ambitions have been recognised in this way by our friends on the Huddersfield Examiner and the AEMT Journal.
