100 treat packages donated by Hanson Springs to Rochdale Foodbank

Date published: 22 December 2019

Local company Hanson Springs has donated 100 treat packages to Rochdale Foodbank for Christmas.

The packages were created from sweet and savoury treats, bought with money saved by emailing out the company Christmas card this year.

Company founder Malcolm Hanson said: “The Rochdale Foodbank is a great local cause. Thanks for all the lovely messages received; it certainly makes all the hard work worthwhile.”

One of the leading firms in manufacturing precision valve springs across the globe, Hanson Springs has grown from humble origins - when founder Malcolm Hanson set up the company in 1963 - to become one of Rochdale’s first-class engineering firms.

Hanson is recognised as being a world and market leader, operating from two sites in Rochdale, on Gorrells Way and Mellor Street, and Plano in Texas.

The very latest valve spring production technology has enabled Hanson Springs to become one of the largest independent valve spring manufacturers in the world.
