Mold maker R&D Leverage Europe is expanding services to now include injection blow mold tooling and product development in Ashfield, England.
The company, a subsidiary of Adler Industrial Solutions, invested in equipment and infrastructure to start the offering, including machinery for mold validation and sampling.
"Our substantial investments and dedication to enhancing our technical capabilities underscore our commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our customers," said James Ramsey, managing director of R&D Leverage Europe, in a statement.
As part of the expansion, company will increase "its technical team both through numbers, and expertise through intensive training," R&D Leverage Europe said.
R&D Leverage Europe employs more than 80 people in the company's 40,000-square-foot location. Expansion includes an additional 15,000 square feet to house a second what the company calls a second Product Solutions Lab that will initially include two mold validation machines for the injection blow molding sector.
Adler Industrial Solutions acquired R&D Leverage, which also has operations in Lee's Summit, Mo., in September 2022.
