Frimpeks is to extend its label stocks plant in Saxmundham, Sussex, adding a further 25,000 sq.ft. The factory produces a broad range of adhesives from standard permanents through to deep freeze, removables and super peel.
The Saxmundham facility manufactures or distributes self-adhesive laminates, inks and digital media. The new investment includes the expansion of the existing coating line to incorporate greater automation and flexibility. In addition a new slitter incorporating fully automated packing lines is being installed in Q2 2016.
Dave Casey, UK managing director, commented: “The site expansion and new plant will increase capacity and follows a similar investment at our sister plant in Remscheid Germany. The Hot Melt coating capability will provide the flexibility and capacity our growing customer base demand and will give us a basis to continue our growth plans and serve the European market.”
