Midland Pressure Diecasting (MPD), one of the Black Country’s fastest-growing foundries, is finishing the year on a high with a £250,000 investment project.
The company has boosted its output significantly after installing a new automatic aluminium die-casting machine at its Willenhall facility.
This will enable it to take on more work and create a number of local jobs.
Plant investment is an area that the company is continually reviewing as part of its ambitious expansion plans, with staff encouraged to put forward improvement projects and spending suggestions.
MPD’s managing director (www.midlandpressurediecasting.co.uk
), Ash Suman, said: “We are always looking at company improvements, whether via investments in plant, processes or our people.
'For the most recent example, we decided to look at how we could become more lean, which would in turn introduce a host of operational efficiencies and additional capacity.
"The installation of this new machine is the first part of our restructuring strategy. Next year will see the start of one of our biggest ever transformation projects, with the entire factory being redesigned to optimise our manufacturing performance.
"It will take about three months to complete, but it will be a game-changer when finished.”
Midland Pressure Diecasting, which has a £4 million turnover, offers aluminium and zinc high-pressure die-casting services to customers in batch sizes ranging from 50 parts to 5 million and with components as heavy as 6kg produced at the company’s two facilities. It also supplies high-quality tooling.
