Brookhouse Aerospace New Factory

Brookhouse Aerospace are very excited to be moving into its new 41,650 sq. ft Head office and factory later this year, which supplements its existing facility of Holme Mill and a reduced footprint within India Mill. The Company will operate with three business units, defined by their relevant capabilities. The new set up will support Brookhouse’s strategy of providing a robust supply chain solution to its customers.

A well-known employer within Darwen, Brookhouse has had its base at India Mill since the mid-90s, this expansion will provide a new HQ offering extensive office and manufacturing space. The facility will cement Brookhouse’s long term growth plans, commitment to the borough, and create an additional 60 jobs over the next 5 years.

As well as securing the future of Brookhouse, the new facility will be greener and more efficient with solar arrays and EV charging points. Overall, there will be a significant reduction of Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions which will not only support alignment to regulatory compliance, but also lower energy consumption, protecting the business against the volatility of the energy markets.

The cutting-edge new facility is designed to elevate employee experience and boost productivity, our modern workspace fosters collaboration, innovation, and pride. It will house the Metallics division alongside a new 5 Axis automated machining setup, capable of highly efficient ‘lights out’ manufacturing, demonstrating a commitment to investment and growth.

Being the new home of all business support functions like HR, Finance, Programmes and Engineering, Brookhouse will establish a centre of excellence and help future proof the business.

Matthew Rossiter – CEO of Brookhouse comments, “The new development with its additional floorspace, is key in supporting Brookhouse Aerospace’s achievement of its long-term growth strategy, creating additional capacity and space for expansion. The purpose-built facility will aid Lean Manufacturing principles, whilst also supporting the Company’s environmental commitments to reduce its carbon footprint and wider social responsibilities. Within close proximity to our existing manufacturing sites, the new development will retain over 150 jobs within the Darwen area and represent the new Head Office for the Company.”
