BPE unveils plans to expand in the North

Release: Immediate

One of the UK’s leading chemical and biochemical engineering design companies has announced plans to open a new office in the North West of England.

BPE, headquartered near Winchester in Hampshire, will open the doors to its Cheshire office in November, giving manufacturers in the North even faster access to its team of experts.

Managing director Mike Brown said the area’s thriving manufacturing sector, particularly its specialisms in pharmaceutical and chemical production, was a significant factor in BPE’s decision to open up at the Science and Innovation campus in Daresbury.

“What’s special about the region is that it’s not just home to some of the most successful pharmaceutical and chemical manufacturers in the UK; it also has a very strong sense of community within the industry. Organisations such as Chemicals North West and BioNow are on the ground, bringing businesses together to share best practice and move the industry forward. As a member of both organisations we’re looking forward to getting even more involved as we open our Cheshire office.”

BPE has been helping manufacturers make their processes safer and more efficient since 1997. It offers a full range of process engineering services, including process modelling, process safety, project management and process development/scale-up support. Specialising in chemical and pharmaceutical sectors, BPE counts some of the UK’s biggest manufacturers among its clients, including GSK, Pfizer, Estee Lauder, BPL and AstraZeneca.

The new office, headed up by regional operations manager Jon McGeehan, will bring BPE closer to some of its existing clients in the North, which include Fujifilm Diosynth, Kerry Foods and Sanofi.

Jon said: “Our clients tell us what they like about us is the way we work closely with them as trusted partners rather than just external suppliers. Being located nearby will allow us to do just that and build even better relationships with these champions of UK manufacturing.”

BPE will celebrate the launch of its Cheshire office with an open day on November 2nd. The event will feature networking opportunities and a chance to meet the BPE team from 11.30am to 3.30pm. To register to attend call Simon Wheeler on 01962 717070.
