The three million pound facility has been carefully selected and designed to provide the UK market with a new training and application area, featuring a fully equipped presentation suite and newly built practical workshop space, measuring an immense 585 sq m, continuing Belzona’s focus on training raising nationwide application standards. A fully stocked and operational warehouse measuring 900 sq m, accompanies the floor space.   

The product training programs, already in operation, hosted EDF Energy on the 16th January, with a sell-out attendance. Catering for Machinery & Equipment, Buildings & Structures and bespoke courses for specific components, the Hawarden facility provides a multitude of opportunities for industry maintenance training. The 2024 training calendar is now available to view on the Belzona UK website. 

“Today, as we open this new Office, we are reinforcing our dedication to the UK market. Although the Belzona brand has branched out to the furthest reaches of the globe over the years, the UK remains one of the most important markets Belzona has. Belzona UK now has its own dedicated on demand stock, product application and training centre, all built with the UK market in mind. This provides Belzona UK with the autonomy it needs to best serve its clients for years to come.” said Philip Robinson, Applications and Training Director.

The official opening ceremony took place on 31st January, just two weeks before its 72nd anniversary with a speech from Director, Philip Robinson and ribbon cutting ceremony, performed by Belzona’s President, Joel Svendsen. Also in attendance were Councillors for Flintshire and Welsh Government officials, including Cllr Gladys and Dave Healey, and Lord Barry Jones, a beloved politician who has served the Flintshire community for over 50 years and been granted the freedom of the county.  

An informal lunch provided a perfect opportunity for guests to mingle with Belzona UK staff and discuss Belzona UK’s continuing commitment to investing in the local community through schemes such as the one percent volunteering scheme and raising money for charities within the Flintshire area, moving into 2024.
