Taking advantage of new reshoring opportunities has seen a Warwick-based manufacturer invest more than £120,000 in its first high-speed press line. JBS Products, known for its patented hook-on plaster bead, has installed the line with Bruderer UK at its Park Farm factory. The firm said the machine would deliver greater accuracy and increased capacity for its work with clients such as Selco, Travis Perkins and RJ Builders Hardware. This new addition is set to be utilised on several new projects that are meeting the increasing demand for UK-manufactured products and will help deliver greater security of supply following significant global disruption. Bud Dhinjan, founder and chief executive of JBS Products, said: “Having worked with Bruderer technology before, there was only one machine I wanted to have in our press shop when the opportunity came to expand. “We had enjoyed a number of reshoring successes and, in order to keep up with demand, we had to increase our press capability. “Since the onset of the pandemic, we have seen demand rocket, driving the employment of an additional five people and prompting investment in a further £250,000 onsite toolroom at our Warwick works to maintain a double shift pattern.” Scott Baker, technical sales manager at Bruderer UK which supplied the new press line, added: “This machine will future-proof JBS’ production.” READ NEXT:
