Filter manufacturer invests for growth
Amazon Filters has invested £0.5 million in the enhanced welding capability at its European production centre in Camberley, Surrey
A leading UK filter and housings manufacturer has invested £500,000 in enhancements to its welding fabrication shop as part of a strategy to boost growth.
The spend includes investment in automated welding equipment, heavy duty craneage and fabrication equipment, ideal for constructing bespoke and large-scale skid assemblies for clients including municipal water companies.
Managing Director Neil Pizzey said: “Improving our in-house welding and fabrication capability gives us more opportunity to control costs, lead-times and flexibility in managing customer orders. That’s because we’re reducing the need to sub-contract.
“Together with our current investments in cartridge pleating and assembly, and a new metalworking shop with CNC machining, this will support our growth plans.”
To help it achieve its ambitions, Amazon Filters is also making a range of other operational investments, including the implementation of an upgraded Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform, adoption of new packing and dispatch technology and a factory-wide wireless network to support the traceability of any product or component from a mobile device.
“We are well set for the future in terms of production infrastructure and capacity, giving us a platform to boost productivity even further in the next three to five years,” said Pizzey.
Amazon Filters has clients in all industrial sectors that deal with process engineering and fluids.
