The wheels never stop turning at the Pentagon Plastics Group as they strive to continually improve their service and manufacturing facility.
Having already invested heavily this year in a major company rebrand, achieved the national award for Investment in Young People and making it as a finalist in the Manufacturing Business of the Year Award for the Gatwick Diamond Business area, the company has now secured the freehold on 12,000 sq. ft of manufacturing space.
Pentagon, located in Blatchford Road, Horsham have now completed the purchase of the adjacent factory which is home to Phoenix Engineering 2009 Ltd (also part of the Pentagon Plastics Group Ltd) and a collection of smaller businesses. Acquiring this facility adds to the freehold of the Pentagon Plastics moulding site and the group now owns over 25,000 sq. ft of operational space
Managing Director, Paul Edwards says ‘This has been a long-term goal and marks the start of another exciting period within the organisation.
Cultivating a measured plan of investment for the two facilities we will deliver additional capacity for our plastic injection moulding and toolmaking services, allowing us to grow as a medium size employer within the local area. We strive to deliver customer satisfaction, be a proactive member of the supply chain and enhance our business services to the benefit of our customers.”
The £750,000 investment was self-funded through working capital and is testament to the ethos employed by the owner, management and staff throughout the facilities.
With a vision of becoming one of the leading plastic injection moulders and toolmakers the group has now laid incredible foundations on which to build further success within the manufacturing and engineering industry.
