TuffX has extended its factory by 10,000ft, making room for new machinery to support the growing production of its Infinity roof lights.
The Knowsley premises has expanded into an adjoining unit, with the additional space dedicated to the production of Infinity products.
Part of the expansion, in what will total £1m investment, the manufacturer has purchased more new machinery, including a new TK heat soak oven and a Dip-Tech digital printing machine, which will be used not only to print opaque borders onto Infinity glass products but also to allow patterns to be added to other products, such as personalising balcony glass.
It has also purchased a fourth Bovone straight line edging (SLE) machine, which is used to finish edges on processed glass products such as balcony and balustrade glass at varying thicknesses. This will go into the original factory where space has now been created by the relocation of Infinity production.
Commercial director Paul Higgins said: “Our factory expansion is the latest part of our planned schedule of on-going investment which has included more machinery, space, staff and fleet vehicles.”
