Expansion into New Facilities

Moving into a new factory in Great Bridge we could increase our range of stock and expand our team. It also gave us space to install a new, bespoke, blanking line which significantly expanded our capabilities and enabled us to be self-sufficient in meeting our customers’ needs.
