Wheatley Plastics the Stockport based moulder has invested in a new Borche BU600 ton machine to meet increased production demand for larger scale mouldings.
The company installed a new Borche 150 ton machine last year and added a further new 200 ton machine earlier this year and the new BU600 was selected on the strength of the performance and reliability of the existing Borche machines experienced to date.The new Borche BU600 is of the Two Platen design and therefore is very compact in terms of footprint and is extremely energy efficient as a result of the Servo drive system.
Wheatley Plastics is a very long established business and has a wealth of experience, managing Director Gary Knight has overseen an impressive rate of expansion over recent years since he completed a management buyout in 2011 in which has seen the company more than double in terms of turnover during this time.
Investment levels for the company have now exceeded £350,000 over the last 12 months in new machinery and material handling systems.
The manufacturer offer clients a full initial product design service together with tooling design and procurement right through to final production.
Wheatley Plastics are well established in serving a wide range of industrial sectors including Construction, Medical, Packaging, Electronics, Point of Display, Plumbing and Pest Control amongst others.
“We have been delighted with the performance of our Borche machines and expect Borche to be very much part of our future expansion plans of which target further growth to £2 million turnover within three years” Gary Knight Managing Director
