What More UK, the Lancashire housewares manufacturer and exporter has invested £20 million on a number of new projects including 13 new injection moulding machines for its Altham factory. The company plans to upgrade or replace every machine within four years.
The new machines, five of which have already arrived and been installed, are specifically designed to address growth and flexibility. Tony Grimshaw OBE, director at What More UK explains: “What More UK is not the sort of company to sit still. In business we deal with crises every day and the worst thing you can do is ignore it. Putting money back into the firm means we’ll be stronger in the future. These new machines will give us the ability to respond to changes as and when they occur.”
