To support the growing demand for our full paint solutions, a £1.5m investment plan has been put into place to increase capacity and broaden our finishing capabilities. Two semi-automated paint lines are now fully operational at our new manufacturing facilities at ‘Voyager Park’, providing solutions that deliver higher productivity and enhanced performance.
The new paint facility is tailored to suit performance requirements for the automotive market and incorporates ‘state of the art’ technology to provide the highest quality finishing. Under floor conveyor systems with fully extracted and balanced floors are incorporated within the multi-chamber spray booths, which house designated preparation, cleaning, paint and drying areas and integrated baking ovens.
Collectively, our semi-automated paint lines house up to 90 wagons for continuous spraying operations. Inspection areas and post paint polishing areas ensure our commitment to technical excellence and our ability to meet stringent quality standards which set us apart from our competitors.
With our wealth of expertise for painting A surface moulded components, we specialise in small and medium batch runs with the flexibility to use various paint systems to exact customer specification. The expanded facility allows even greater operational flexibility to paint bespoke and short-run special projects. We work with Europe’s leading paint suppliers to offer either a primed finish or a high gloss colour finish to exact customer specification. Our new paint facilities are supported by a further 6 climate controlled spray booths/drying ovens which are integrated alongside our manufacturing facilities to ensure the highest quality and rapid turnaround.
As one of Europe’s leading suppliers of tooling and lightweight components, moulded components can be supplied as individual items or as complete assemblies and where required, painted, primed or flocked. Our services include the assembly of multiple component parts inclusive of bonding, mechanical fixings and welding, for small and medium batch runs for interior and exterior body parts such as engine bay components and cosmetic trim parts. We also specialise in producing the highest quality flock coating using the latest technology.
