Moog opens new facility for UK Industrial Group

25 November, 2015

Moog Industrial Group, a part of Moog Inc., has opened a brand new purpose-built production facility in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, UK. The new facility will support existing high performance motion control engineering, design, manufacturing and service both globally as well as in the UK.


The building accommodates approximately 100 people, of which 60 per cent are employed in either engineering or production roles. Moog Aircraft Group continues to operate nearby from its own facility.

Spacious design

The new building will deliver at least 2215 m² (7267 ft²) of manufacturing space with an additional 1863 m² (6112 ft²) of office space to support both hydraulic and electric motion control applications and service in industrial markets such as motorsport, test, industrial automation, and energy, while providing sufficient capacity for future expansion. In addition it will accommodate support roles such as, IT, Sales, HR and Marketing.

Modern and comfortable working environment

Chris Curr, entity manager at Moog, commented: “Space in our former facility became constrained as our business expanded with high-end engineering projects. Our new facility will bring everyone together in one building, enabling us to provide our workforce with a modern and comfortable working environment in line with our company culture, whilst maintaining our high level of customer focus.”

Curr added that, along with celebrating the launch of its new facility, the company is also celebrating 50 years in Europe. He explained that part of that activity includes the launch of a contest to find the oldest operating Moog servo valve. The contest is open to anyone who can find a Moog servo valve in operation on a machine (For more details, see page 12 of the September edition of Hydraulics & Pneumatics).

Unique culture

“Something that has served Moog very well over 74 years and is still and alive and well in the company is our unique company culture,” continued Curr. “[Company founder] Bill Moog’s philosophy and values are something we remain very proud of. This keeps Moog a very special place to work. Put simply, the Moog philosophy is we believe in the people who work for us and we believe that work can be a rewarding experience for everyone in an atmosphere of mutual trust and confidence.”

Among other projects, Moog is well-known in the UK for the design and manufacture of the equipment that controls the centre court’s retractable roof at Wimbledon and as a leader in motion control products for Formula 1 racing cars. In addition, Moog also provides high-performance solutions, products and services for a variety of machines and equipment. The company, which is a major employer in the Tewkesbury area, has been operating out of the UK since 1968.
