Plastic Supplies Dudley the Brierley Hill based Moulder has invested in a new Borche BS260 ton machine to meet increasing demand.
Whilst the company’s order book continues to grow this investment decision was also very much influenced by the necessity to improve the production efficiency of the factory and reduce production costs where possible.
The company had one of their existing older machine broken down and was faced with another potential costly repair, instead of this the management decided to replace the machine and invest in a new Borche Servo driven machine.
Following the installation of the new Borche BS Servo controlled machine as a direct replacement of the existing machine of old fixed pump design, the company’s monthly electricity bill has reduced by a staggering £4,200 per month, which represents almost 50% saving from the monthly electricity bill and thus this investment has proved to be fully self-funded with a payback period of less than 14 months.
Plastic Supplies Dudley is a family run business established in 1969, the company has a range of injection moulding machines up to and including 480 ton and manufacture both in house product together with a range of components to various industrial sectors including construction, heating and ventilation, leisure and automotive amongst others.
Managing Director of Plastic Supplies Dudley, Tim Loverock said: “ We are delighted with our decision to install the new Borche and in particular with the savings in our monthly electricity costs that have been made as a result, we would not hesitate to make the same decision again in the future.”
