Cable management specialist, HellermannTyton, has completed a multi-million-pound expansion to its Plymouth factory with an official opening due to take place in July.

Based at the Plymouth International Medical and Technology Park in Derriford, HellermannTyton has doubled the size of its current factory by adding a new 3,439m2 production facility. The new site expansion will support recent developments across a variety of sectors including rail, automotive and defence, which has caused a 60% growth in business at the site.

The expansion features a bespoke extrusion hall, high-speed extrusion lines and state-of-the-art feed systems which have allowed HellermannTyton to increase its manufacturing capacity. The new site also gives the company the ideal combination of production space, warehouse storage, access to shipping docks, as well as innovative machinery.

Barry Phelps, commercial sales manager for HellermannTyton, comments: “We are delighted to announce that our new Plymouth site will be opening in July. This expansion has been made possible by the hard work and commitment of our dedicated team and we are keen to see the amazing work and solutions that will be created at our state-of-the-art new facility.

“The expansion is also part of our decade-long plan to reinforce our status as the leading supplier of cable management solutions, and with this, comes our commitment to preparing the next generation of manufacturers,” said Barry. “The new investment means we can flourish as a local employer; creating nearly 100 new jobs and providing a training academy and research and development labs to give a boost to both the local economy and the future of cable management solutions.”

As a global manufacturer that offers high-performance fastening, connecting, protecting, and identifying cable solutions, HellermannTyton works with a diverse range of industries and key manufacturing processes at the factory have been implemented to create solutions for a multitude of industries such as aerospace, solar and electrical.
