TCL Packaging moving to larger manufacturing facility in Telford, England, during H1 2014; facility offers 70,000-sq.-ft. of manufacturing space for packaging films, represents two-and-a-half times the capacity of company's current site
January 13, 2014
– To cope with increased demand for its packaging films, TCL Packaging has contracted to a new manufacturing facility in Telford. The company will move in during the first half of 2014.
The new site on Stafford Park Industrial estate will provide 70,000 square feet of manufacturing area. This represents 2.5 times the current capacity at the company’s current factory at Telford’s Hortonwood estate which has been in service since 2001.
At the end of 2013, the company placed an order for a new Rofin laser scribing and perforating unit and will shortly order an additional printing press to be installed at the new site, further extending manufacturing capabilities. The move is also expected to result in new jobs and apprenticeships in the region
TCL has enjoyed year-on-year, double digit sales growth for the last few years despite the economic recession. The company cites technical service and high definition print quality as its two main factors for success
