28 Oct Thomas Dudley’s New Head Office Underway
Leading Black Country manufacturing firm Thomas Dudley has started work on a new multi-million-pound corporate head office. Based on the Birmingham New Road in Dudley, the company produces castings and top quality bathroom fittings. The company is still owned by the Dudley family who founded the business in 1920, and it now employs around 350 people.
The new development will provide state-of-the-art offices for staff alongside a customer-focused showroom and training facilities.
It is the latest in a string of investments in facilities, technology and people by the firm which says it has seen ‘exceptional growth’ in recent years.
Martin Dudley, Thomas Dudley’s joint managing director, said: “This is another significant milestone in the development of Thomas Dudley. It further underlines out commitment to investing in the business, in order to deliver world-class products and services for our customers nationwide and overseas.” Fellow joint managing director Jason Parker added: “The new building supports a number of our strategic business principles in that it will allow us to provide an enjoyable, customer-focussed environment that promotes family values and we look forward to moving in the next year.
Thomas Dudley is one of the finalists in the innovation and technology category in the Black Country Chamber of Commerce Awards.
The foundry division of Thomas Dudley has recently invested more than £250,000 in enhancing its warehousing and logistical capabilities. It has also completed a major modernisation of the finishing facility at its Duport Foundry.
