News: Purex expand out of Rotherham


Purex International, a manufacturer of fume extraction systems, has expanded from its Manvers base and relocated to Thorne Park in Doncaster.

The firm manufacture systems that capture fumes at the source, preventing fumes escaping into the workplace, before filtering and recycling them meaning that fumes are not pumped into the outside environment. The systems are used in electronics factories and to remove all of the odours created by wide format inkjet printing equipment.

Recently moving into a 18,680 sq ft unit, which it acquired on a freehold basis for an undisclosed sum, Purex said that the new purpose built headquarters will allow it to fulfil its current rapidly growing business and ambitious future expansion plans.

Andy Easey, operations director at Purex International Limited, said: "The development ticked all the boxes for us as a business and fits well with our expansion plans going forward. We are a South Yorkshire company servicing clients globally and felt the location and facilities on offer at Thorne Park stood out within the market."


Having secured a £6.5M grant from ERDF, speculative high specification industrial space was developed out at Junction 6 of the M18 by Henry Boot Developments in a Joint Venture Partnership with RBS.

Vivienne Clements, director at Henry Boot Developments, said: "Out of 150,000 sq ft we now only have two units remaining of 30,000 sq ft and 18,000 sq ft which are available on a freehold or leasehold basis. We are confident that deals for these remaining two units will complete very soon."

The former Purex premises at Farfield Park, Manvers is being advertised for sale by Mark Jenkinson & Son. The 17,125 sq ft plus 3,965 sq ft mezzanine includes warehouse and two storey offices.

The management at Purex acquired the business from parent company, Domino Printing Sciences plc, last year.

Following a strategic review of options, the board at Domino Printing Science decided that Purex would be better placed to drive expansion in its chosen markets as a business that was independent of the group. Domino said that it had no plans to expand the group's business into broader extraction or purification applications and disposal of the company will allow it to focus on developing opportunities in coding, marking and digital printing.

Purex currently employs over 40 people in the UK and USA, with annual sales of around £6m.
