Berco UK has officially marked its relocation to a new larger factory and office in Spennymoor, CountyDurham by announcing plans to double its workforce to 50 employees.


Berco, which manufactures undercarriage components and systems for tracked vehicles, established a UK division in 2006 in order to strengthen its presence in the market while basing itself closer to customers including Komatsu and JCB.



The move to Spennymoor comes at a time when Berco needs to increase capacity to meet growing customer demand while enabling expansion into new market areas.



The new 150,000 sq ft facility will facilitate a doubling in productivity with a corresponding increase in workforce during the next few years.



Growth is being fuelled, in part, by Berco’s global strategy to decentralise its sub-assembly processes from Italy; moving the processes to the regional divisions to be closer to their customers.
