In 2001, BM Catalysts purchased the 83,000 square foot premises to expand production and develop its processes. It was also the year that current Managing Director, Toby Massey, the third generation of Masseys, joined the company full-time.
Reed Mill is one of two sites owned by BM Catalysts and is home to almost 200 staff members along with key business functions, including product development, CNC tube cutting, bending, final assembly, warehousing, dispatch and head office teams.
At Reed Mill, BM Catalysts took delivery of its first high-tech CNC machinery shortly after purchasing the premises which allowed for precision engineering and large-scale production. This gave the company the platform to significantly increase output and improve product quality, which in turn helped BM Catalysts to establish its reputation for high-quality standards that is synonymous with the company today.
Over the last 20 years, since the acquisition of Reed Mill, BM Catalysts has been able to achieve a number of successful milestones. These include continual expansion of its product offering, winning a number of business and manufacturing awards, and celebrating 50 years of business to name a few.
Commercial Director at BM Catalysts, Mark Blinston, said: “The investment in Reed Mill was very significant – and a bit of a gamble really. But it certainly paid off! It meant we were able to purchase our first CNC high-tech machinery, leading to greater outputs and enabling the company to grow.”
Holly Brailsford, Marketing Manager at BM Catalysts adds: “Half of the Reed Mill building used to be an indoor go-kart track, so that gives you a good idea of the sheer size of the facility. The building has enabled us to develop our processes and build on our reputation for high quality UK manufacturing.”
