New Manufacturing Facility

Injection Moulding specialists, Sovrin Plastics have signed an agreement for the construction of a new 43,000 sq. ft.(4000 sqm) manufacturing facility to house its Tooling, Class 8 & GMP cleanroom moulding and assembly divisions.

The new, state of the art facility represents a £4.5 million investment in Sovrin’s future and will feature some of the latest injection moulding, automation and material handling technology.

With a focus on lean manufacturing and 50 years of technical injection moulding and assembly expertise, Sovrin have designed the new manufacturing site to improve utilisation and efficiency whilst significantly reducing its carbon footprint. This development exemplifies Sovrin’s policy of continuous investment for the future, constantly enhancing our capabilities and supporting our developing customer base in whatever way possible.

Construction is underway on a brownfield site, close to their existing manufacturing sites which will ease the transfer into the new building to be completed by the Autum of 2015.
