With Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS) support for expansion plans that have opened up new market opportunities and have seen £400,000 invested in updating its factory, sales are up 40% to £3.3m over 12 months and five new jobs among a workforce of 43 have been created to cope with demand.
“The banking crisis made us look long and hard at our business and where we wanted to go. A lot of the changes we were making were reactive to market conditions and we knew we needed to adopt a more proactive approach,” says operations director Gareth Thompson.
He continued: “Using industry specific roadmaps we have come up with a strategic plan to take us to 2017. We’ve already secured shopfloor efficiencies and a 40% increase in sales.”
