Following continued year-on-year growth, Chemique Adhesives, a UK manufacturer of industrial adhesives and supplier of adhesive application equipment, has implemented its expansion plan and moved into a new 1200m2 facility.
The new unit is being utilised for raw material and finished goods storage, and extra racking has also been installed, creating over 700 pallet spaces.
The new storage facility has allowed for additional space to be created in production areas, where newly purchased state-of-the-art mixers have been installed, leading to an increase in manufacturing output.
The new mixers will enable the production of new and toll-manufactured products ranging from filled 1K and 2K PU, structural PU, hot melt, epoxy and various water-based formulation.
The expansion has also included a new QC laboratory, along with the upgrading of fume and powder extraction systems in production and laboratory areas.
Simon Cashmore, operations manager at Chemique Adhesives, commented: “We have made a significant investment in new equipment, and the expansion of our premises demonstrates our commitment to growth and our dedication to providing quality products to our valued customers.
“Following the approval of planning permission, a proposal is already in place for 2024 to source mor equipment and increase our bulk storage capacity further, improving efficiencies, reducing waste streams and increasing productivity.”
