Expansion announced at Applied Automation
Engineering firm, Applied Automation, is expanding its machine building division. Ten new posts are being created at the headquarters in Plymouth including two managers and eight mechanical and controls fitters. Specialising in the design and build of bespoke automated machinery, the Engineering Solutions division is at the heart of the company’s growth plans.
Managing Director, David Rowe said: “Our business is growing even more rapidly than we forecast and we need to make some changes to the division and expand our production capacity. We moved into larger premises last year and are now driving forward our growth plans. The Engineering Solutions division in particular is reporting a very healthy order book. It is a really exciting time as we cement our position as one of the UK’s leading automation providers.
“Buying and refurbishing this factory last year was a significant investment for us. It is more than twice the size of our previous site but having the extra space has meant we are able to take on new customers and deliver bigger machines and bigger projects.”
The creation of these new positions will take the number of employees at Applied to 160. Building automated equipment is the core business for Applied, but its activities span a range of activities including the distribution division, X-STK, which specialises in industrial control and automation products.
