Based in Bounemouth, Dorset, the Parvalux headquarters buildings house our administrative, design engineering and test functions. This is also where we manufacture low-quantity orders. The factory utilises semi-automated winding equipment to produce armatures from spindles and laminations wound with copper wire. Motors and gearboxes rely on manual, hand-assembly techniques with the aid of automatic and manual presses. This factory is setup to manufacture our one-off and low to medium volume production motors across our entire spectrum of range and options. 100% of our complete motor gearbox assemblies are tested in our own dedicated test facility, ensuring each unit leaves us ready for many years’ work. These tested products can be painted in a range of colours and individually packed, with the Dispatch team kept very busy, every day. As volumes increase, the production process will adapt accordingly and we’ll hand over the production lines to our High-Volume Production team. The HQ factory is run as an independent business unit, on a lean manufacturing journey that incorporates manufacturing engineering measured against daily production targets.
