About the project

With demand for increased capacity, the project will support an extension to the existing factory. New machinery has been purchased and a reorganisation of the site has taken place to maximise the efficiency of capacity. Production and distribution have now been combined under one roof and the factory is working towards a 50% increase in paint manufacturing capacity in 2016.  The project is core to a wider three year development phase to transform the site, with the company already investing in a large scale overhaul of the factory structure and creating new laboratories and modernised office space.

Job creation

As a direct result of this investment five jobs have been created, including additions to the sales and technical teams.
