Manufacturer doubles capacity with new factory

Lincolnshire sprayer manufacturer Househam has completed work on a six-figure investment on its new factory in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire.

The new facility increases the factory’s footprint by 30% and production capacity by 50%, with double the number of construction bays for Househam’s latest self-propelled sprayers. There’s also space to test the biggest sprayers in their range.

The expansion comes after a year which saw the company grow its exports by 25 per cent.

Robert Willey, managing director of Househam, said: “This factory completes the first stage of our investment into our future. We design and build all our machinery on site, so improved, increased facilities will improve and increase our service to farmers – providing more farmers with the advanced technology they need to meet today’s agricultural demands.

“We’re a British business and Brexit will create opportunities for us, both here and abroad. We need to be well placed to take advantage of this as new markets open up to us. Our new factory will allow us to meet increasing demand – supporting farmers worldwide while supporting the local economy here.”

Househam says it is now set to enter its second phase of development as construction begins on its ‘Househam Academy’ – a specialist training space for customers, staff, and local young people interested in the industry. The Academy is due for completion by the end of the year.
