What More UK invests £20m in new machinery

Plastic goods manufacturer What More UK has invested £20m in a number of new projects including 13 new injection moulding machines for its Altham factory.

The new equipment increases the company's capacity to manufacture its internationally-renowned Wham range. The company also plans to upgrade or replace every machine it owns within four years.

The new machines, five of which have already arrived and been installed at their Altham site, are specifically designed to meet the needs of the organisation.

Tony Grimshaw, director at What More UK, said: "What More UK is not the sort of company to sit still. In business we deal with crises every day and the worst thing you can do is ignore it. Putting money back into the firm means we'll be stronger in the future. These new machines will give us the ability to respond to changes as and when they occur."
