Excelsior Roto-Moulding Ltd says it has entered 2016 with renewed confidence as the business comes back from a “challenging period” in which it experienced both fire and floods.
The rotational moulding firm, based in Bury, Lancashire, is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2016 and says it is marking the milestone with fresh investment in plant and personnel in order to ensure the next 40 years are successful ones.
“We’ve been a well-known and well-respected player in the industry since 1976, and every member of the Excelsior team brings pride and integrity to their work. We always strive to be the best that we can be for our customers, and throughout our recent tribulations, that ambition remained,” explained Excelsior’s Managing Director, Giles Fielding.
The family firm has recently invested in its Lancashire plant, building a mezzanine floor to facilitate increased product storage capacity, enabling it to further improve the customer delivery times of its safety steps, grit bins, materials handling containers, exhibition display cases and equestrian products.
Excelsior has also invested in new machinery, recently purchasing a new carousel, and is currently undertaking a comprehensive equipment analysis in order to ensure optimal manufacturing efficiency and minimal customer delivery times.
In addition, the company has launched a rigorous staff development programme, with staff at all levels undertaking courses including NVQs. Two new recruits have joined the firm - Liesa Barrington as Production Planner and Purchaser, and Bernard Cullen as Dispatch Manager – and promotions have been made.
“As we begin our anniversary year, not only is our ship well-and-truly back in order, but it is better than ever. We look forward to the next 40 years with great excitement, mindful of the great strides we have taken and will continue to take, for the benefit of our customers,” Fielding concluded.
