Large Diameter Pipe Manufacture
The Company is very pleased to announce its investment in a new large diameter pipe manufacturing line which will be installed at our Lurgan site over the coming months. The brand new state of the art extrusion line will showcase the latest in extruder and corrugator technology and will produce up to 1500mm corrugated pipes in multiple stiffness classes. This new line will be the largest corrugator in the UK and Ireland and one of the largest corrugated pipe extrusion lines in Europe.
This significant investment as well as recent investments in product development, fittings production, CNC tool making facility, Tullyroan factory extension and duct manufacture sends out a very positive sales message to the UK and Irish markets and will allow us to develop our business within the Civils and Construction markets with the capability to deal with large scale projects and open up new market sectors which were previously beyond our reach and manufacturing capabilities.
This exciting development further reinforces the company position in the marketplace and enhances the product offering of Cherry Pipes Ltd to provide future growth and diversification in our industry. It also sits alongside the other areas of current development within the Company in terms of the investment in staff, skills, process development and the organisational structure.
The installation and commissioning of this new line will take significant effort and focus by all involved and will require Company wide support. Work will begin on site early in February. I believe that this news sets the scene for what promises to be a very busy and exciting 2018
