Sheffield-based manufacturer PCL (originally Pneumatic Components Limited) is to invest £550k into production equipment, systems and new product development.
Factory upgrades include the installation of three carousel storage units to create space, improved stock accuracy and a safe and organised factory floor, while the warehouse is to benefit from new scanners for improved accuracy and reduced process errors.
In addition the ERP system is to be upgraded and auto bagging machines and a new lathe are to be acquired among other plant tool upgrades.
Operations Director Dean Batterby said: “We are developing quicker, more responsive and competitive ways to progress from idea into the marketplace and will continue to do whatever we can to meet and exceed customer expectations, improving delivery performance whilst maintaining the high quality of the PCL brand”.
PCL, along with Tecalemit and Flaco are part of the holding company Horngroup, headquartered in Flensburg, Germany.
