Venari Group, the Brighouse-based specialist vehicle builder, has taken on new staff and increased manufacturing capacity with a new equipment investment.
The six-figure sum in new machinery is intended to reduce production times whilst subsequently increasing product quality.
The new machinery will be put to work alongside recent equipment purchased back in the summer, highlighting the rapid intentions for the group.
The company is also driving ahead with growth plans with a series of new starters. Sean Bailey comes in to lead procurement in the ambulance division, whilst Ashleigh Ellis-Hood joins to shore up procurement at headquarters. Steve Hill has also joined the team as homologation engineer to drive efficiency in vehicle standards and approvals.
With sustained and continued growth for both Venari and subsidiary company, O&H Vehicle Technology, the firm look set to drive growth in the emergency vehicle sector throughout 2021, adding to a progressive 2020.
“At the start of the year we looked ‘down the barrel’ of the pandemic, but we remained intent on driving forward to prevent moving backwards. The effort throughout the team this year has been nothing less than incredible and at 32 years-old; our Goole division is now truly starting to peak,” said Group CEO Oliver North
“Over the past few months we have grown capability and capacity, but with continued challenges in supply chain we have taken the decision to increase component production at headquarters. In parallel, this will allow us to drive quality whilst reducing lead times and protecting our IP.
“The intention now is to integrate our new team members to ensure we finish 2020 strongly and set up an exciting 2021.”
