Medical devices developer, MJS Group, has taken delivery of a new EN 300 plastic injection moulding line fom Romi Machines as the business expands.
The company moved from Barton-le-Clay to a new, 35,000 sq ft freehold premises in Luton over the summer in order to triple its floor space and capacity to enable it to increase its market share in the medical equipment sector. All 35 staff transferred across to the new site with the company.
MJS sells medical mattresses, pressure sensitive airbeds and cold therapy devices for sports injuries and post-operative applications. Having the right equipment producing at the right unit cost is key to providing reliable finished products at keen prices. That has been critical to the MJS growth; it has increased its turnover by 50 percent since 2012.
“We had had very good experience with the Romi EN 260 we put in three years ago. It was the first machine we had bought new and, given that second-hand prices are not much lower than buying new at the moment, it made sense for us to return to Romi for this latest investment. We use the plastic injection lines to produce the control system units that go with our equipment and this larger machine does allow us to extend our portfolio further,” explained Chris Saggers, MJS’ Managing Director.
MJS is unusual in handling the design, tool making and manufacture of its products in-house, ensuring that quality control is tight and pre-delivery checks thorough.
Neil Bathard, national sales manager for Romi Machines in the UK, says: “It is great to seeing MJS Group growing and increasing their plastic injection moulding capacity to meet customer demand. Our business takes us into many different engineering sectors but this one provides medical equipment and we know it is critical that MJS have equipment that can provide quality components efficiently.”
