The Pentagon Plastics Group is excited to have taken delivery of a new BOY 22A moulding machine this week to support the growth in demand for their expert moulding services.
The new addition expands the range of smaller size presses to four 22 tone moulding machines catering for the medical and aerospace industries as well as other technical moulding production demands.
Pentagon is now home to 13 plastic injection moulding presses which range in size from 22 tonne to 280 tonne clamp force. The group has seen continued and sustained growth in production demand over the last 18 months and this new addition will ensure that they can continue to deliver short lead times, providing flexibility to their customers for urgent requirements.
This £25k investment comes only eight months on from the groups last moulding press purchase. The demand for continued investment within the organisation gives Pentagon confidence for the months and years ahead.
As the Moulding Division of the organisation sees continued growth the group will be looking at best utilisation of its 23,000 sq. ft manufacturing plant. As a responsible manufacturer the focus will not only be on optimisation of space but also the environmental impact of any improvements.
In times of uncertainty for the plastics industry, there remains high demand for UK manufacture and Pentagon are one of the companies ensuring they are best placed to serve the needs of the growing market.
