Work has begun on a £40million manufacturing and design facility in Tewkesbury for Moog Controls.

Barberry, the Stourbridge-based development and investment company, has started construction on the site near junction 9 of the M5, having agreed a 35-year lease with Moog Controls. Essex-based Readie Construction has been appointed to deliver the construction contract.

Jon Robinson, development director at Barberry, said: “It’s fantastic to see work finally start on site so we can move forward with our program. To have reached this stage so soon is testament to all the hard work and effort put in by our professional team. We are excited to be delivering a state-of-the-art factory and extremely proud to have led the way on what will be one of the few carbon neutral manufacturing facilities in the UK.”

Moog general manager Mark Lawton said: “The team is delighted to be moving to the construction phase of the project and we look forward to working with Barberry in the months and years to come.”

Construction of the carbon neutral facility is scheduled to be complete in April 2022 with the centre of excellence, which will incorporate engineering and administration offices, expected to be operational in 2023.

The new facility will help foster further growth in Moog’s Engine and Flight control products for military and commercial aerospace programs. Moog sees the expansion as an integral part of its commitment to long-term development and manufacturing in the UK.

Moog Inc. is a worldwide designer, manufacturer, and integrator of precision control components and systems. Moog’s high-performance systems control military and commercial aircraft, satellites and space vehicles, launch vehicles, missiles, automated industrial machinery, marine and medical equipment.
