Trumeter Technologies Ltd, the world renowned designer of innovative measurement and automotive lighting products, has today moved to larger, purpose designed premises in Bury, UK.
Trumeter designs and manufactures electronic lighting systems for automotive and other applications as well as a diverse range of measuring, counting and control equipment for multiple applications. Both interior and exterior lighting products designed and manufactured by Trumeter have been specified on the Jaguar XF since 2007, and are now specified on cars built by Range Rover, Land Rover, Ford, Audi, Aston Martin and Daimler Evobus. With the fast pace of growth in this sector in particular, Trumeter has quickly out-grown its present offices in Bury.
Trumeter invented the world‟s first measuring wheel back in the 1950s, a product used by both public and professionals the world over. Trumeter‟s products still include the famous yellow and black measuring wheel and include the world‟s first electronic version invented some decades later. The Trumeter commitment to innovation and continuous improvement continues to be very strong today, with a thriving business in counters and timers, and a product range available to measure and control just about anything – cable, rope, amps, volts, temperature, wallpaper, carpet, distance you name it, Trumeter has a suitable product .
The new self-contained and modern facility, named „Trumeter House‟, has over 700m2 of offices, laboratories, test areas and a new Pilot line / Prototype development zone. In addition, the newly established distribution centre is co-located at the facility, and this will enable Trumeter‟s Distributors and Customers to enjoy a next day service in Europe across much of the Trumeter Product Range.
The spacious facility has been completely re-fitted to Trumeter‟s specification. Over the last 2 years Trumeter has developed a great relationship with the Landlord, City Executive Centres (CEC), and this move confirms that for the next 5 years. As well as the office in Bury, CEC have offices in Harrogate, Liverpool and Newcastle and across the country. John Smith, Trumeter Director commented “The CEC team are a pleasure to work with and did a fantastic job to manage the extensive refit under great time pressure”.
John continued: “Trumeter has been based in the North West for 75 years, and this move sets us up well for many more years to come. The move has brought all our head office functions together in one collaborative office suite. Importantly also, since all the product engineering and design is done here in Bury, it will provide the space and resources for the highly skilled engineering team to work on multiple projects simultaneously, and enable the growth in product development and commercial resources anticipated and required over the next few years to be accommodated effectively.
