Crestchic expands its manufacturing footprint by 60% to meet increased demand

Crestchic Loadbanks, a UK-headquartered manufacturer of load testing equipment, has announced plans to extend its factory, adding 60% to the current site footprint, along with an additional 30 jobs. Work is officially due to commence in August 2021, with an anticipated nine months build time.

The company, which is based in Burton-on-Trent, said it has bucked the trend during the recent pandemic, resulting in the need to expand and recruit new talent.

“The investments we are making in our business will help to meet increased demand from our core sectors,” said Paul Brickman, Sales and Marketing Director at Crestchic. “The focus on renewables, along with growing demand from the data center sector, means more demand for power reliability and load testing equipment.

“We’re looking forward to getting the build underway and welcoming new people to the team in early 2022.”
