Yorkshire based Advanced Plastics ltd acquired of a 50,000 sq. ft. Hull based factory in August 2012.
An extensive refurbishment programme saw the building stripped back to the frame and re-enclosed with high performance materials to achieve outstanding levels of energy efficiency.
New plant services were installed throughout with lighting, heating, compressors and process water chilling all utilising the latest in low energy / low carbon technology.
The factory houses 20 injection moulding machines ranging from 40t to 1500t clamp force and is equipped with three new travelling overhead cranes providing lifting capacity up to 10t.
The layout is conducive to lean manufacturing having all aspects of the operation housed under one roof thus reducing workflow and process duplication.
The new factory was occupied from 3rd January 2013 providing a world class manufacturing platform to accommodate current and future business expansion.
