Interfood Technology expands UK operations with new site

Interfood Technology has announced its relocation to new premises. 

The business moved from its previous location in Thame, Oxfordshire to a brand new facility in nearby Haddenham, Buckinghamshire last month.

The new site is four times larger than its previous facility. The move has been made to allow the company to continue to develop and expand in its role of supplying food manufacturing, processing and production machinery to its customers. The company’s phone and e-mail contact points remain the same.

Mark Bishop, joint managing director of Interfood, said: “We were conscious that the growth we’ve experienced, particularly in the last few years, meant we were effectively outgrowing our existing premises.

“We wanted to stay in the same geographic area, as it has proved an excellent base from which to serve our customers. When we identified this new unit on the Haddenham Business Park, we realised that it met our requirements, both in terms of the expansion we need right now and also in providing the capacity to support the ambitious expansion plans that we have for the business over the coming years.”

Jim Sydenham, joint managing director of Interfood, added: “Keeping downtime to a minimum is a prerequisite in busy food processing operations. To ensure that the experience of our dedicated product engineers is backed by the availability of the components required for them to do their job, we held in excess of £9 million of spares in our Thame warehouse and, by relocating to Haddenham, we can now extend that. The large space will provide new facilities, allowing us to expand our training capabilities – such an important factor in ensuring that customers get the optimum performance and productivity from their equipment.”

Interfood will also retain its site in Carrick-on-Suir, Co Tipperary as its base to continue serving its customers in Ireland.
