Exciting investment programme underway at Swindon
15 Jun 2022
Our Swindon team, in addition to their busy day jobs, is mid-way through an exciting £1.3m investment programme that is set to upscale its production facility.
Seven years since the business located to its current site, its portfolio and output has remained consistent. Now changes are being made to maximise the capabilities of the site and react to the continued growth of the corrugated market.
To date, in 2022, four machines have been relocated and a new 300 sq metre mezzanine floor has been installed to give additional tooling storage. The extractor system has been upgraded to reflect the increased production capacity, and practical elements such as a new roller door and compressor have been installed to support day to day operations. Most significantly, has been the installation of a new Eterna Diecutter, the third to be installed by the group this year so far.
In the second half of the year, the existing Mosca pallet strapper will be modified and relocated, a new semi-automated pallet line is to be installed and a new Bobst Expertfold Multipoint Gluer will be commissioned. A brand-new taping machine will be the final installation which will directly support Swindon’s growing ecommerce market.
Josh Stell, Managing Director, Boxes and Packaging (Swindon) commented; “2022 is an extremely exciting year for Swindon, already this year we have done a lot of work improving our storage capacity and efficiencies and installed our new Eterna flatbed die cutter.
“Further to come this year will be our Bobst Multipoint Gluer and Taping Machine, as well as our new pallet line. By quarter 4 this year we will have greatly improved our capacity within the factory and enhanced our product offering to include multi point glued and taped boxes. This investment has helped us to enhance our current capacity for the existing products our customers have come to know us for and added another feather to our bow by further tapping into the growing e-commerce and taped market.”
