Glendenning Plastics has invested in several new Borche machines and Sepro Robots after seeing a massive increase in sales this year, particularly from its Garland Products range of gardening and horticultural products.
To meet the increased production demand, the company has made significant investments in a further three new Borche machines together with sepro robots.
The new Borche BU600 and BU700 ton machines, together with a new BS320, add to a fleet of 32 machines now in production at the firm’s Kingswinford factory up to 1500 tons.
The new Borche machines are equipped with servo drive technology and thus deliver considerable savings in relation to the customer’s annual electricity cost.
Further investment has been made by the company in a new warehouse to provide additional storage capacity and thus releasing more space for expansion of production. The new warehouse is situated close to the manufacturing facility and can house up to 4000 pallets.
In addition to the garden product range, the company also runs an industrial and technical moulding division that serves a number of industrial sectors, including product handling & containers, transport and building & construction, among many others. The company have also experienced growth within the technical moulding division as well.
Glendenning Plastics was established in 1965 by Ron Glendenning and is now run by his two sons Stuart and Miles Glendenning, who both have a wealth of experience within the plastics industry.
The company also continues to expand the product range with the recent addition of 54 new lines to the product catalogue and follow an environmentally conscious approach to both manufacturing with a policy of raw material recycling and a reduction in the amount of finished product packaging.
Chairman of Glendenning Plastics, Stuart Glendenning, said: “We have been using Borche machines now for over six years. The machines have proved to be very reliable and have delivered a considerable saving in terms of power consumption.”
