NLB opened a dedicated branch facility in the United Kingdom on the 1st of December. The company’s new Darlington-based facility, and its abundance of available transport links, is especially well-located to serve NLB customers UK-wide.
With close to 2,000 square meters of workshop, office, and yard space, the branch will house a range of NLB pump units for quick sale or rental, an increased inventory of accessories, and spare parts with plenty of room to conduct water jet demonstrations and customer training sessions. Huge roll-up garage doors will make it easy for customers to bring their units in for service support – no matter the size!
The move from a shared location to a dedicated facility, with more space and increased staffing, will help NLB respond even more quickly to European demand for top-quality, reliable water jetting equipment. It will also reduce service times and give customers’ personnel access to UK-based training.
“This is a really exciting time for NLB in its international expansion plan,” said David Beckington, V.P. of International Sales, “it reaffirms NLB’s commitment to supporting customers both new and old in the U.K. and across Europe.”
NLB Corp. enjoys a fantastic reputation in the U.K. for reliable and easy-to-use equipment, which has been pivotal to its continued success within the U.K.
The service centre will also be the European hub for supporting NLB’s growing influence within the Aquaculture industry — having on-hand inventory and specifically trained technicians is vital in this time-critical market.
The new NLB branch, the company’s newest beyond North America, is now located at Lingfield Way, Yarm Road Industrial Estate, Darlington, DL1 4GD.
NLB Corporation has played a key role in the growth and diversification of the water jet industry since its founding in 1971. Its high-pressure (up to 40,000 psi, or 2,800 bar) pumps and accessories are widely used around the world in many different applications, most notably product removal and surface preparation. The company built and opened a new full-service facility in Wixom, MI in 2021after outgrowing its former Wixom facility that housed the company for over 50 years. NLB proudly joined the global Interpump Group S.p.A. in 2007.
