Birmingham-based, Kalsi Plastics, has moved to new, state-of-the-art facilities following a hike in turnover and a successful bid for lucrative funding.
The company has carved a leading reputation in the plastics industry, establishing itself as a choice manufacturer and supplier of high quality, maintenance free plastic products for use in construction. Since its founding in 1993, Kalsi Plastics has developed a vast range of products, including: rainwater systems, soil waste systems, sewer systems and building materials. Each are manufactured by the companyâs in-house extrusion and injection moulding facilities with products certified to meet, and exceed, British Standards.
The new purpose-built facilities in Sparkhill will provide the extra production capacity needed by the business as demand for its products soar. Construction is under way at the site and the 80,00 sq ft facilities are expected to be fully operational by the summer this year. In turn, Kalsi Plastics is predicted to increase its staffing levels with the employment of up to 20 new staff. As such, the new facilities will not just be a major boost for the company but also the local area from which many of its staff are sourced.
The development is backed by Barclays Asset Finance. The banking group has provided £3.5m in funding which covers the construction of the new facilities as well as a number of new extrusion lines to be fitted inside. Kalsi Plastics has enjoyed a close relationship with the back for over 20 years and Andy Perry, Relationship Director at Barclays in Birmingham expressed his support for this latest investment.
Kalsi Plastics has enjoyed year on year growth over the past ten years and its turnover has increased to in excess of £30m. The company has made committed investments in all aspects of the business over the last three years, and much of its success can be attributed to its dedication to emerging technologies. Amongst an eco-friendly fleet and the innovation evident in its products, this latest investment is sure to spell new promise for the Birmingham manufacturer.
