ActionPlas Investing Over £1 million to Drive Ambitious Growth30 June 2017
Here at ActionPlas, we are delighted to announce significant investment in personnel, new machinery and an expansion of our production facilities (by an additional 13,000 square feet to 25,000 square feet), as a strong commitment to supporting our customer base.
New state-of-the-art machinery, including an innovative hybrid CNC production system combining heavy-duty routing with fast knife cutting, provides increased processing speeds and the ability for increased customisation.
The AXYZ Trident 6010 7G CNC Router’s oscillating knife will allow us to process thinner, flexible materials including foam core and corrugated plastic, delivering clean cut edges without fraying. We can now also process thicker, softer materials and quickly achieve exact alignment with printed shapes.
The purchase of two Haas Mini-Mill 2 Vertical Machining Centres offers increased our milling capacity and high-speed processing capabilities.
Our financial injection is a sign of the commitment and dedication we have towards supporting the production, continuous improvement and growth plans of our customer base.
Large investment has also been made to the ActionPlas workforce, which has grown by 11 new employees since 2015, as we welcomed new team members in sales, human resources and production. Further positions are due to be announced following the recent investments, with vacancies both regionally & nationally across sales, design and management expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Details of the vacancies will be published on the ActionPlas website.
The expansion into a new warehouse at our Grangefield Industrial Estate headquarters - one of the principal industrial estates of Leeds - has grown both production and stock space.
Chris Wray, Managing Director at ActionPlas, said: “In line with our growth strategy and to meet an increasing demand for our products, we have made significant investment in our workplace, machinery and personnel to allow for increased output, shorter lead times and the ability to take on more work.”
“We’re confident that our continued investment in innovation and technology will help us achieve the growth in capacity and capability we need to support new projects, future-proof our business and ensure we can continue to offer our customers a complete, high-quality service, while remaining flexible to evolving trends.”
