Since establishing in 1952, Belzona has been providing industrial protective coatings and repair composites. Celebrating its 66th anniversary this year, Belzona shows no signs of slowing down, with the opening of a state-of-the-art training and distribution centre, which is situated at its head office in Harrogate.

The new £6 million facility will more than double Belzona’s current distribution area floor space, with 12 metres of usable height, adding around 4,000 pallet spaces and 166,100 cubic feet of total floor area. The training area features a new fully equipped presentation suite, as well as a practical training/demonstrating classroom. In 2017, over 40 courses were delivered to over 175 delegates from distributorships located around the world.

David Blackwell, engineering director at Belzona Harrogate, said: “Here at Belzona we believe that training is vital to success. Training empowers people to meet the demands made of them in the work environment and prepares them for the unexpected situations that life will throw at them. Our practical training courses are designed to enhance the theoretical aspects of Belzona solutions by placing them in a practical context.”
