ActionPlas, one of the UK’s largest speciality machinists and supplier of plastics, has made a strong commitment to the Pudsey area with significant investment in staff force, new machinery and an expansion of its warehousing facilities by an additional 13,000 square feet to 25,000 sq ft.
The Leeds-based company specialises in the manufacture and supply of bespoke plastic components for the food and drink, automotive, pharmaceutical, print, leisure and personal care industries in the UK and across Europe.
Large investment has been made to the ActionPlas workforce, which has grown by nine new employees since 2015, taking up roles across sales, human resources and production.
Further positions are due to be announced following the recent investments, with vacancies both regionally & nationally across sales, design and management expected to be announced in the coming weeks. Details of the vacancies will be published on the ActionPlas website.
The expansion into a new warehouse at the ActionPlas Grangefield Industrial Estate headquarters – one of the principal industrial estates of Leeds – has grown both production and stock space.
New state-of-the-art machinery, including an innovative hybrid CNC (computer numerical control) production system and a machining centre, provides ActionPlas with increased processing speeds and greater milling capacity, helping it deliver on its ever-growing order book with shorter lead times.
The financial injection by ActionPlas is a sign of the commitment and dedication the ambitious manufacturer has towards supporting the production, continuous improvement and growth plans of its customer base.
Chris Wray, managing director at ActionPlas, said: “In line with our growth strategy and to meet an increasing demand for our products, we have made significant investment in our workplace, machinery and personnel to allow for increased output, shorter lead times and the ability to take on more work.
“We’re confident that our continued investment in innovation and technology will help us achieve the growth in capacity and capability we need to support new projects, future-proof our business and ensure we can continue to offer our customers a complete, high-quality service, while remaining flexible to evolving trends.”
