    In order to facilitate the expansion of their worldwide business, Panaz, who design and manufacture fabrics for the Hospitality, Healthcare and Corporate markets, have moved their European headquarters to a new facility of 90,000 sq. ft. in Hapton, Burnley, England. Tony Attard, CEO of Panaz Limited, stated that 20,000 sq. ft. is made up of office space, a new design studio and a fully furnished Showroom and 70,000 sq. ft. is allocated to manufacturing and distribution space.Previously Panaz occupied three sites in Burnley: the main manufacturing hub at Spring Mill in Fence, a satellite warehouse for large shipments and a separate showroom. The new facility is designed to consolidate all of these three sites onto one, adding significantly to the efficiency of the operation and in preparation for future growth. In addition to this expansion, a new digital print manufacturing is being added to the operation to provide more design flexibility to clients and faster delivery times for bulk projects.

    Panaz have been operating since 1985 and site location move ties in with their 30th anniversary. To celebrate this achievement, Panaz held an Opening Day on Thursday, 11th June where guests were invited to view the new site and were given tours of the various operations, product presentations and machinery demonstrations. To mark the occasion, Tony Attard spoke to all the guests and staff, thanking them for the role they had all had to play over the past 30 years and indicated his plans he and the company have for the future. Panaz were fortunate to have Lord Shuttleworth, in attendance at the Opening Day and after a few words, he officially opened the new building revealing a plaque in the main reception area. It was fitting for The Lord Lieutenant to be part of the celebrations as he had visited Panaz in the very early days and was well aware of how the company developed both in the UK and overseas and how the business itself had grown over the past 30 years.
