Banbury company Glazpart has completed a two-year investment programme that has seen £1,000,000 of capital investment in the business.

The specialist injection moulding company, which employs 87 staff at its Wildmere Estate site, produces millions of mouldings each month.

The completed investment programme is leading to increased sales and new markets.

Glazpart Ltd’s sales and marketing manager Dean Bradley said: “The money invested has been spent across the business providing state of the art capital equipment to ensure the highest levels of quality and rapid turnaround whilst maximising our production capacity and capability.

“All this whilst driving our commitment to British manufacturing including design and manufacture of innovative new products.”

The investment has seen a doubling of the company’s capacity for vacuum foil processing of three-dimensional components as well as the introduction of the latest Deckel Maho milling machines and more. The investment has also led to the installation of new Engels injection moulding machines.

The investments have been supported by IT and software upgrades, the recruitment of an apprentice as well as new product innovations such as the new Link-Vent trickle ventilators, which has significantly reduced the length of ventilator fitted to windows as required for meeting the government’s building regulations.

“This is one key area where we have seen a sales growth,” said Mr Bradley.

He added: “This investment programme significantly benefits our customers as we strive for ever higher quality, on time delivery; whilst investing to manage our future costs.”
