Statement from Malcolm Youll, Managing Director, Weiss Technik UK Ltd

Posted on 17th May, 2018

"Weiss Technik UK Ltd has recently announced a proposal to close our manufacturing facility in Ebbw Vale. This follows a strategic review which focuses on improving efficiencies within our UK operations.

Our focus now is on repositioning the business to deliver a highly efficient, customer-focused organisation. The measures we are taking will ensure that we retain, and indeed build upon, our market leadership position.

The following is a summary of our commitment to both existing and new customers:

Weiss Technik UK Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Weiss Group, the world’s largest manufacturer of environmental testing equipment and one of four divisions of the German Schunk Group.

We are investing significantly in the development of world-class products. Our Weiss Technik and Fitotron brands will continue to set the standard in environmental test chambers in the many UK and international market sectors we serve.

Customers will benefit from enhanced services. As well as having the largest team of factory-trained engineers throughout the UK, we are also extending our Aftersales and Service offering. Our objective is to provide the most comprehensive range of service solutions in the industry.

I would like to emphasise that our German parent company has 100% commitment to sustaining and growing our UK business in the future. I would like to reassure all existing and new customers that it is very much business as usual".
