Multipanel UK to launch second production line and increase warehouse capacity
Multipanel UK has finalised plans to introduce a second fully-motorised racking system at their Dover site in June 2017 to meet the growing worldwide demand for high quality, UK-made products. The firm is the only manufacturer of Aluminium Composite Panels (ACP) in the UK.
The new racking will complement the introduction of a second production line due to be unveiled in Q1 2018 . Multipanel UK has increased its production and stockholding capacity by 100% in just under 3 years after reshoring manufacturing to the UK from China in 2014. In total, the project represents a further £2m investment in their Dover-based factory.
With enough room to store just over 1,000,000m2 of ACP stock (3,885 pallets), this new facility will allow Multipanel to hold an additional 616,000 m2 of stock in comparison to the previous system (1,600 pallets) and taking their total on-site holding to over 2,000,000m2.
