The Exeter-based branch of Hayley, one of the UK’s foremost providers of engineering products and services to industry, has moved into newly-built premises on Matford Business Park to the South of the city centre. Lord Mayor of Exeter, Councillor Kevin Mitchell, will attend an official opening ceremony on Thursday 9th November.

Hayley Group, which is part of DEXIS Europe, the industrial arm of multi-billion-Euro distributor Descours & Cabaud, prides itself on its healthy local stockholding at upwards of fifty locations, ensuring customers are supported with the goods they require, wherever they are in the UK. The moving of the Hayley Exeter team into the new premises represents an investment in a larger unit and is a strong declaration of support for Hayley’s customers in Devon and the wider South West region.

Hayley Exeter’s new 13,360 sq. ft. premises is comprised of warehousing, offices, a dedicated trade counter, and a showroom. The larger office space will enable the team to expand as desired, with a view to doubling the number of staff employed in the coming years, further enhancing the support provided by Hayley Exeter to its customers.

The brand-new warehouse will house products from across Hayley Group’s diverse portfolio including Bearings, Fluid Power, Power Transmission, Tools, Lubricants, and PPE.

The site will also host a specialist gearbox assembly facility, differentiating it from what was achievable at Hayley Exeter’s previous location. This additional facility will enable Hayley Exeter’s customers to benefit from same and next-day delivery on custom assemblies of leading-brand industrial gearboxes.

Hayley Exeter’s new building has also been delivered to a standard of BREEAM ‘Very Good’, which represents sustainability performance in the top 25% of UK new non-domestic buildings. BREEAM is the world’s leading science-based sustainability assessment scheme for the built environment. The scheme motivates sustainable design and construction and has been applied to this project across a broad spectrum of sustainability issues. These include the management of the building, health and wellbeing, energy, transport, water, materials, waste, land-use, ecology and pollution. Features such as the following have been incorporated into the building: a building fabric that minimises heating and cooling demand, efficient lighting and sanitaryware, cyclist facilities that reduce the reliance on car transport, and photovoltaic panels on the roof which are already demonstrating financial return for the business.
