Investment in New Premises Pays off for ActionPlas!06 March 2018
ActionPlas, one of the UK’s leading speciality machinists and supplier of plastics, has reaped the benefits of its 2017 warehouse expansion with impressive quarterly sales – up 47% year on year.
In 2017, we expanded into a new warehouse at our headquarters at Grangefield Industrial Estate in Richardshaw Road, boosting our space by 13,000 square feet to 25,000 square feet
In the first four months following the move, sales rose by 12% compared to the previous quarter and up 47% on the same quarter in the previous financial year. Since October, we have secured seven new customers – a record quarterly haul!
New machinery, including a Mini Mill and Vertical Panel Saw, has been installed to increase processing speeds and the ability to offer faster delivery and improved quality for bespoke cutting.
A recruitment drive has also led to the appointment of a graduate mechanical design engineer, two additional CNC machine operatives and an internal sales trainee.
Chris Wray, managing director at ActionPlas, said: “Our investment in facilities, staff and machinery has borne fruit, with fantastic performances in both sales and customer acquisition. We will continue to invest and evolve to cement our role as the country’s leading speciality machinists and plastics suppliers, delivering high quantities in rapid turnaround times.”
