Stewart expands manufacturing facilities

Published: 22 April 2013
The home and garden plastics manufacturer has further improved and expanded its manufacturing capabilities with plans to install a 3 axis Co-ordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) at its 178,000sq ft facility in Banbury.
Stewart ceo Richard Butler said of the move: "The installation of the CMM will match Stewart's new growth, revolutionise our manufacturing process and increase our profitability. The machine is of an extremely powerful standard, and our technical experts look forward to working with this great piece of equipment, furthering our expertise within the technical division."

The addition of the new equipment will naturally improve the production process and the company believes this will, in turn, enhance its customer service. Technical sales manager Simon Turner explained: "The CMM will enable us to validate clients' components and mouldings quickly and accurately to their specifications. In effect, this reduces time spent on approving parts and bringing mouldings into production."

Stewart is already a market leader in rotational and injection-moulded products and products manufactured by the firm include pots, propagators, food containers and specialist storage products.
