Happy New Year From Exwold Technology Ltd

4th January 2019

Exwold would like to wish all our customers and suppliers a happy and prosperous 2019.

2019 will be another busy year at Exwold with wide ranging improvements and investments already planned to allow us to further develop our offer to our customers following another year of growth in sales.

 

Planned improvements for 2019 include:

Completion of a new line which will further increase our extrusion and blending capabilities, This will come on line in February.

Completion of Phase 2 improvements at both Haverton Hill and Brenda Road.

Last year we replaced the exisiting mixer at Haverton Hill and up-dated ancillaries to improve reliability and containment and we will capitalise further on these improvements. At Brenda Road, the Compactor was up-graded, a new blender installed to enhance the companies blending, impregnating and coating capabilities and 3 packing lines were upgraded. Up-grades in the liquids line are now being progressed.

 

We are working towards ISO 45001 accreditation to demonstrate our continued Health and Safety commitments. In 2018 we completed the transition to ISO9001:2015: and ISO 14001:2015 which was a great achievement and many of our policies have been up-dated.

The growth in business over the last 5 years has been supported by increased employee numbers including creation of a number of management positions over the past 12 months plus an up-grade in the ERP system, which positively impacting working practices and equips the company for further growth.

As we continue to grow engagement with employees and the local community is essential.

With increasing sales, our products are distributed world wide and attending events such as Chemspec remain critical networking opportunities . In 2018, Exwold became members of the Chemical Industry Association.

 

Brexit continues to be on everyone's minds and as a privately owned SME based in the UK, we want to see frictionless trade with our European partners. Through discussion with our clients, we are confident that the partnerships we have (with both suppliers and customers) in the rest of Europe will ultimately lead to business as usual but we all need a clear picture of what a final deal will bring. We need to fully understand both the opportunities and challenges ahead ans share many business's concern that without the final framework for trading with Europe agreed rapidly, uncertainty will damage confidence in UK supply. We strongly encourage the politicians to get a deal done quickly to ensure the best trading conditions for all Eurpoean suppliers.

 

2018 was a very special year for Exwold as we celebrated the companies 25th Anniversary and we are looking forward to the New Year ahead.
