Amteks' injection moulding business has grown by 150 percent
Amtek Plastics UK says the last two years have seen its injection moulding business increase in size by 150 percent.
The Devon-based moulding and tooling company has expanded dramatically in the last two years, with a significant investment of over £150,000 in new machinery and a three-fold increase in floor space at its manufacturing facility.
The company has recently started working on developing the product ranges of several OEMs, as well as winning a new contract with international delivery firm, DHL. It has also rebranded, incorporating ‘UK’ into its title, as well as implementing a full back office system.
“I'm not sure if we are bucking the trend but we are finding that working with the right businesses that are investing in new product development are certainly keeping us extremely busy right now,” commented Amtek’s Owner, Stewart Little.
In order to help achieve this growth, the company has been working with Newton Abbot-based business coach, Steve Gaskell, for the last two years.
"It's exciting times here at Amtek,” commented Gaskell. "One of the real areas to focus on has been productivity and in the last couple of months, that has gone up by 64 percent.”
The company is now continuing with the five-year expansion plan put in place by Gaskell, concentrating on growth in key customer sectors of aerospace, defence, medical, retail and construction.
