Broadwater Mouldings has completed the expansion of its manufacturing facilities at its main UK production site in Suffolk.

The company explains by spanning the open space between two existing production units an expanded single, interconnected, factory space has been created.  The extended building has created an additional 1428 sq.m (15,370 sq.ft) of shop floor space, along with a new ‘all weather’ covered loading bay. This latest investment has taken the total factory area for Broadwater Mouldings to just under 7,500 sq.m (80,500 sq.ft), increasing the overall production space by over 20%. 

According to Broadwater the new factory space has been fitted out to a high specification to comply with the latest environmental, health and safety (EHS) standards.

The company claims upgrading the factory with the new extension has helped Broadwater Mouldings attain a Suffolk Carbon Charter 2014 Bronze Award for reduced energy consumption across the entire business.

Matt Herbert, Managing Director of Broadwater Mouldings explained:“This expansion has not only given us more capacity, but the extra space has now enabled us to reorganise the factory for greater efficiency and implement many of the excellent ideas that have come from the shop floor production teams as part of our ‘lean manufacturing’ programme.”
