Ezi-Dock Systems has invested £6 million to secure new premises, land and manufacturing equipment.

Continued global success across its entire product range has brought the need for further expansion at Ezi-Dock Systems, which has just concluded the purchase of an additional 50,000 square foot facility less than 5 minutes from the M1 motorway.

“Ezi-Dock has outgrown its premises every few years since we launched,” commented MD Steve McAleavy. “I suppose we shouldn’t complain, but constantly having to expand our facilities is costly of time and resources and so we took the decision last year to secure much larger premises with excellent transport links which would have the capacity to meet our needs over a considerable period.

“The new premises at Barlborough, north Derbyshire, offers sufficient scope for our further planned growth and, in addition to housing a new Class 7 cleanroom, engineering, R&D, warehousing & distribution and administrative activities, it will also accommodate extensive new manufacturing facilities.”

Part of the company’s increased manufacturing facility will see the immediate installation of an additional 6 new injection moulding machines of various sizes, bringing a 3-fold increase in Ezi-Dock’s moulding capacity. The total investment in this expansion is in excess of £6 million.

The company’s newly purchased building provides almost 40,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing space alongside 13,000 square feet for administrative departments and, standing on a three and a half acre plot, offers substantial scope for the construction of further buildings.
