Major Investment For Kingspan Access Floors

 

Most of the demand is coming from overseas markets where Kingspan’s international sales have increased by more than a third compared to last year.

Major orders have come from across Eastern Europe, the Middle East and also Continental Europe where, despite the euro crisis, Kingspan’s joint venture company in Spain, Kingspan SueloTécnico, is maintaining its market-leading position.

Kingspan Managing Director Terry Newman said: “In line with the growth of our international business, we have now further developed our international team by recently appointing our first overseas-based sales manager, who is working from the Ukraine, and a further UK based manager.”

“Although the UK market is currently relatively flat, the forecasts are for growth in the commercial office sector from next year, so that will be a further boost for Kingspan,” he added.

“This major investment in new equipment highlights the Kingspan group’s commitment to our Hull manufacturing site.It will increase our production capacity by 30% and cut energy consumption by up to 40%.”

Press Techniques of Huddersfield have custom built the production equipment and will begin installation shortly. Managing Director Alan Penn said: “The equipment is highly efficient, user friendly and will provide a major payback on power usage.”

 

In further environmental moves, Kingspan recently signed a green energy contract for its electricity and is also installing photovoltaic solar panels as part of the Kingspan Group’s commitment to use only renewable energy on its sites by 2020.
