Bond It is set to build on the business with a further six figure investment into its business.
Following investments of over half a million in 2014/2015 and of £1.1m in 2016, the company is investing an additional £300,000 into infrastructure at its main manufacturing facility in Elland, West Yorkshire in Q1 2017.
The latest investment, which includes grant funding from the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership, will help Bond It to both increase and diversify its production output.
Bond It will use the latest investment to install additional, semi-automated plant to produce sealants, adhesives and fillers in a number of specific pack formats.
This includes product packaged in 900mm composite ‘jumbo’ cartridges and foil ‘sausages’ – two formats that are popular with high volume users such as professional contractors. The plant will also be used to produce Bond It’s new ‘Squeezies’ range.
Targeted at the DIY market, the Squeezies range allows users to benefit from some of Bond It’s bestselling products in convenient, squeezable and resealable plastic tubes.
Graham Helm, operations director at Bond It, said: “The latest investment will add to our already extensive production capabilities and help support our continued success and growth. In particular, it will help us to develop export sales and to capitalise on strong global opportunities for our products.”
