Naylor Drainage has made a further investment in the company’s in-house plastics moulding division by installing its first Borche 500 tonne machine.
The Barnsley-based firm, a subsidiary of Naylor Industries, manufactures drainage products for the building and civil engineering industries.
The Naylor group employs 380 people and has six UK manufacturing sites, across Barnsley, Cheshire, Scotland and the West Midlands.
Naylor’s in-house moulding facility houses five existing moulders up to and including 440 tonnes which use 100% recycled polypropylene to manufacture various products for Naylor’s clay and plastics divisions.
The new Borche machine, will be used to produce connectors, access chambers and a new range of environmental components.
Naylor’s injection moulding manager Mark Grimes, said: “We evaluated a number of machines and suppliers before selecting Borche. The combination of a high spec machine together with excellent service and technical support and massive savings on energy reductions finalised the deal.
“The machine was delivered on time and we have been delighted with the performance to date.”
