Aftermarket emission tech manufacturer BM Catalysts has acquired a new factory, expanding its UK presence.
Situated next to the firm’s Fulwood Rise production plant, near the M1 in Nottinghamshire, the new 41,000 square feet facility grows the brand’s portfolio to five.
The brand said the new facility “demonstrates its commitment” to the long-term future of its business “and the industry”.
“This significant investment follows a record-breaking year of sales, prompting the need for expansion to meet increasing market demand,” it added.
Anticipated to become operational within the next 12-18 months, the newly acquired site may undergo further expansion to accommodate the growing needs of the business.
Mark Blinston, director at BM Catalysts, said: “The business continues to grow, and our dynamic approach allows us to adapt to the challenges that come our way. We’re experiencing significant growth in demand across the markets we operate in, and we recognise that there are huge opportunities in this sector in the years to come.
“The new site will enable us to increase production capacity at our head office plant while simultaneously expanding our stock holdings in the new facility, streamlining the dispatch process for even greater speed and efficiency. It’s another example of our company’s ongoing commitment and investment in the future of this sector”.
This new factory, the brand adds, means the company can maintain stock levels of over 80,000 parts, covering 90 percent of the European car parc, while also developing up to 300 new-to-range parts each year.
