A SUCCESSFUL DESIGN COMPETITION ENTRY FOR SEW-EURODRIVE TO BUILD THEIR EXCITING NEW FACILITY IN NORMANTON, WEST YORKSHIRE. THE CUTTING EDGE DESIGN TERMED BY THE CLIENT PROVIDES 10,000 M2 OF OFFICE AND ASSEMBLY FACILITY ACCOMMODATION.

The assembly facility provides 7,000 m2 for the assembly of geared drives, electronics, industrial gears, service and storage areas, space for the incoming and outgoing of goods.
