MGS makes £400,000 investment to meet growing demand

We have invested £400,000 in new machinery and robotic equipment following a growth in demand.

MGS Technical Plastics, has purchased two new moulding machines from Sumitomo Demag – a D210 model which increases capacity for lower tonnage work and a D420 model which allows more options for their customers’ mid-range work.

In addition, our company has invested in four new Sepro robots to help operate the machines and improve shopfloor efficiencies, bringing the total investment to £400,000.

“As our business grows we invest to meet demand. We started out with a lot of smaller moulding work but we are increasingly being asked to undertake projects that have larger parts. The purchase of these machines means we are better equipped to meet our customers’ requirements,” commented Neil Garrity, MGS Manufacturing Director.

“As well as extra capacity and more flexible working, the new machinery increases our automation, which means we can work more efficiently and meet the ever increasing demands from our customers.”

MGS has already begun its next phase of investment, increasing the size of its premises before investing in a material feed system for the machines, which will go in the extension.

Garrity added: “In line with our growth strategy we’ve invested to improve efficiencies and provide our customers with a service that’s beyond their expectations. We’re investing in the business and we’re all really proud of what we are building here.”
