Faerch Plast is set to double production capacity in the UK following the planned installation of an additional extrusion line and associated thermoformers at its Durham-based manufacturing facility by early 2015.
This key strategic move will ensure the company continues to meet its annual output for CPET ready meal trays and high clarity APET and PP materials for cold foods and snacks, including bakery, dairy, vegetables and cold meats. Since it was opened in summer 2012, the purpose-built, 14,000m² plant has reported significant growth and currently boasts 60 employees, one extrusion line and accompanying thermoformers. It operates to stringent hygiene, quality and environmental standards. As part of this latest investment, Faerch Plast will install a range of additional associated production equipment such as cutting-edge robot packing systems, cooling machines and compressors.
