Emissions parts manufacturer Klarius Products has invested in a second Vector Pipe Line machine at its facility in Cheadle.
The machine is part of a £1m investment in the plant. Standing at least as tall as a double decker bus, it turns aluminised steel strip into corrosion resistant pipe used in the manufacture of exhaust systems.
Local MP Sir Bill Cash came to cut the ribbon and press the button to start it up. Paul Hannah, Business Development Director said: “It was a great opportunity to thank everyone in the Klarius team, all three hundred of them for their hard work and underline why it is so important to our business. Also, by investing in our own machine tool manufacture and refurbishment business we are not only improving Klarius production machinery, but also developing skills and growth within the UK economy”.
Other recent investments for the firm include a new van fleet and a new manufacturing line producing automotive service aerosols and fluids.
