Project name: Refurbishment of Hangar 3 for Total Carbide
Square footage: 29,503 sq ft of industrial space
Project completion date: October 2016
Building specifications: 29,503 sq ft of industrial space refurbished within Hangar 3 with an eaves height of eight metres.

The company relocated from Princes Risborough and agreed a 10-year lease on the refurbished Hangar 3 comprising 29,503 sq ft of industrial space.


This move allowed Total Carbide to remain in the County and was a great opportunity for them to tailor an existing building into an environment fit for their purposes.


Total Carbide is one of the European leaders in the design and manufacture of tungsten carbide wear parts. The company provides wear part solutions to a global customer base, mainly focused on the defence, aerospace, food, textile and medical industries.


The company was incorporated into Gloucestershire based Versarien plc (AIM:VRS) in 2013.

Being operational at Westcott is a perfect fit for our business as it brings us closer to the industries we supply, including defence and aerospace. We hope to enjoy significant growth over the next five years and our new base at Westcott will give us the scope to grow and develop further. This location means that we can now benefit from the rich high-tech and engineering skills base and for the first time in twelve years we will be employing two apprentices.
