UK medical device manufacturer, Europlaz Technologies Ltd, based in Southminster in Essex, is expanding to 50,000 sq ft (4,645 sq m) to keep up with demand for UK based manufacturing.
Europlaz took control of the freehold of the additional 18,000 square foot building within its existing industrial estate in August. The extra space will be used to double capacity for quality, technical injection moulding and cleanroom assembly.
Following investment in machinery and cleanrooms over the past two years Europlaz has seen a surge in new business won as well as the extension of existing contracts. Europlaz will keep its current site and cleanrooms but add extra production, cleanroom and warehouse capacity. The additional buildings also offer an opportunity for the Europlaz management team to work in closer proximity, easing the impending growth and change challenges.
The company’s growth will offer a boost to the local community with the creation of jobs and adding life to an area previously used predominately for storage.
