  “ This new facility perfectly compliments our three existing extrusion plants & has been designed to enhance our offer of contract manufacturing of granules for new markets whilst expanding our capabilities for our existing clients. We have been able to modernise our approach with more automation but crucially maintain the plant flexibility, which is essential for contract manufacturing of multiple products for multiple clients. Our technical & operational teams have such experience & knowledge of this technology that it was a very logical step to expand this capability.  We are now better placed to offer extrusion technology to the Speciality markets where we have a strong pipe-line & we are excited about the new opportunities this will lead to!  ” says Sam Price, Commercial Director.
