Manufacturer Bond It has made two six figure investments with a total value of almost £1/2 million into its production capabilities as it continues with its expansion plans.
The business – which manufactures sealants, adhesives, tiling products, waterproofing compounds and other building chemicals – has invested £250,000 into a new silicone and hybrid compounding plant as well as a further £200,000 into an additional high speed, high efficiency cartridge filling, packing and labelling plant.
Both investments have taken place at the company’s main production and head office site in Elland, West Yorkshire. They will enable Bond It to increase overall production volumes whilst delivering benefits in areas such as continuity and responsiveness of supply.
David Moore, managing director at Bond It, said: “Thanks to a commitment to offering high quality, technically innovative products at competitive prices and backed by good customer service, Bond has become one of the UK’s fastest growing manufacturers of sealants, adhesives and other similar products for the building trade.
“The recent investments into our new silicone compounding plant and an additional cartridge filling, packing and labelling line will support that success and ensure our production infrastructure keeps pace with growing demand.
“The latest investments will also deliver significant commercial advantages both for Bond It as a business and for the rapidly expanding customer base we serve.”
The investment of £200,000 into a filling, packing and labelling plant follows a previous investment of £1/4 million into a similar plant in Q2 2014. Like the earlier investment, the new plant is state-of-the-art and fully automated.
Moore added: “Bond It has ambitious plans for the future and the latest investments will play an important part in that. Further investments will take place over the coming months as we seek to build on our success, not just in the UK but on a truly global scale.”
