Albis UK, the Knutsford, England-based compounder, has invested more than $313,000 to increase it capacity through new equipment and upgrades of existing machines.
Overall site capacity is expected to rise by more than 10 percent after output on one of the firm's existing compounding lines was increased following an upgrade.
Ian Mills, Albis UK's managing director, said the investment reflected confidence in his company and in the wider plastics industry in the United Kingdom.
“It will also help to improve flexibility and response times for our customers,” he said.
The company is a unit of Hamburg, Germany-based compounder Albis Plastic GmbH.
