Expansion at Zip-ClipZip-Clip (www.zip-clip.com), a manufacturer of high-specification suspension systems for the electrical, mechanical, heating and ventilation industries, has expanded its facility in Welshpool, as its exports boom.

The 6,000ft2 of additional space at its site on Offa’s Dyke Business Park was constructed at a cost of £375,000 by the Welsh Government and leased to Zip-Clip. The extension will allow the company to fulfil its growth plans.

The company’s turnover has increased from £4.6 million to £5.5 million since its move to this site last year — also facilitated by the Welsh Government — and it expects to double its workforce to over 70 in the next five years.

It exports to some 22 countries already, and it has seen a major increase in demand from overseas.

It has now established Zip-Clip Pty Ltd in Melbourne to distribute products manufactured in Wales into the Australian and New Zealand market from this month.

The company supplies a variety of suspension systems, which have been used in projects such as the new American Embassy at Nine Elms in London, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and the London Olympics Aquatic Centre.

Chief executive Steve Goldsworthy said: “The extension on the new unit will enable us to future-proof the needs of our export clients.

"Our aim over the years is to develop our overseas market and provide good service through new product development and customer support.

"The initial support we had in developing overseas customers through trade missions enabled us target the correct countries and businesses effectively and affordably.”
