The switch to Borche will help the firm keep up with demand and drive down operational costs.
Pitched roof tile manufacturer, Russell Roof Tiles, has invested £90,000 in an energy efficient, high performance Borche injection moulding machine to speed up its plastic manufacturing operation.
Borche is one of the largest injection moulding machine manufacturers in the world, which is why Russell Roof Tiles, who employs 140 people across its two sites in Burton, and one in Lochmaben (Scotland), is continuing to invest in their high quality, cost effective machinery.
The new Borche BS series injection moulding machine has already proven to increase the overall manufacturing capacity by 23% in comparison to its predecessor due to its size and tooling capabilities.
The £90,000 investment is the latest to join the fleet of Borche machinery purchases made by the manufacturer having proven to be reliable and versatile. The switch to Borche will help the firm keep up with demand and drive down operational costs.
Daniel Hancox, Business Support Manager at Russell Roof Tiles, said: “There are two main factors we took into consideration before purchasing the new machinery and that’s its cost efficiency and eco-credentials. The new Borche machine can save between 20-80% of energy compared to a traditional hydraulic system.
"It’s a great piece of machinery that aligns with our sustainability and Net Zero goal as it helps to reduce our carbon footprint. We’re delighted with the performance of the machine and expect that Borche will continue to be part of our future plans.”
The latest investment will allow the company to increase efficiencies and is part of Russell Roof Tiles’ long term capital improvement plan to further enhance quality across the business, by utilising the latest innovations in manufacturing.
