Haith expands Doncaster factory with £1.5m investment

Haith Group, a specialist vegetable handling and processing machinery manufacturer, has opened a new £1.5 million extension of its Doncaster factory.

The extension adds 870 square metres to its site which, the company said, will allow it to work on multiple large-scale projects at the same time.

Taking 13 weeks to build, the new factory was officially opened last week by Haith Group founder, 92-year-old Mr Geoff Haith, in the presence of the company’s 110 employees.

“When my father started in business 75 years ago, I’m not sure he ever thought that the company would grow to its current size and would be spending over one million pounds to extend its factory, but that’s what we’ve needed to do in order to continue to meet demand,” said MD Nigel Haith.

“My father set out to design and build machinery that would meet the needs of his customers, solve their problems and provide them with a high quality, reliable and efficient solution to their problems.

“75 years later and our focus hasn’t changed. I think it’s our commitment to designing excellent machines, which are built to last and represent tremendous value for money that has fuelled our growth to such an extent that we simply had to increase the size of our factory.”

As well as extending the factory, Haith has also recently taken on ten new employees, including project managers, designers, fitters and site service and installation engineers.
