Advanced polymer technology group, Trelleborg, has announced it is to further enhance its manufacturing capabilities with the expansion of its factory in the UK.
The multi-million pound, 3,750 metre-square development of the company’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility will see Trelleborg consolidate its two Skelmersdale-based facilities onto one site.
Alongside the expansion, Trelleborg states it will also upgrade its existing equipment to include new advanced polyurethane dispensing equipment and an upgrade of its current syntactic and static bending stiffener plant. New dynamic bending stiffener manufacturing equipment will also be built at the Skelmersdale site.
Operations Director at Trelleborg Offshore UK, Ray Cann, said: “The investment into our site in the UK demonstrates our long-standing commitment to servicing the growing offshore oil and gas industry.
“As the industry continues to move towards ever-more demanding subsea applications, it becomes even more essential that we are best placed to meet their growing demands, not only in terms of capacity, but in terms of developing innovative, cost-effective solutions that provide the upmost quality and performance.”
