One of the new KraussMaffei machines being distributed in the WhatMore UK facility
A Lancashire-based manufacturer and distributor of plastic products has made a multi-million pound investment in injection moulding machines in order to facilitate its rapid growth.
What More UK Ltd, which has grown to become the UK's largest manufacturer of ‘Wham’-branded plastic housewares, gardening and storage products, made the £5.4 million investment in new Krauss Maffei injection moulding machines over the last 12 months.
A further £8 million has been invested since 2013 in developing and expanding the company's distribution centre, based close to Burnley, bringing its total operating area - encompassing manufacturing, distribution and head offices - to just below half-a-million square feet.
It is from here the company exports and distributes more than 650 products to 63 countries, including the Far East.
The company’s Director, Tony Grimshaw, says a “deep-seated commitment to constantly re-investing and developing new product lines” has underpinned the company's continued growth.
"By continually developing new and innovative ideas for the home, manufacturing to the highest quality standards and keeping prices extremely competitive, we've been able to stay not one, but several steps ahead of our rivals worldwide," he commented.
