To keep pace with growing demand for its products, Bond It has made a six-figure investment into a new cartridge filling, packing and labelling plant.

Bond It continues major investment programme

Published:  24 June, 2014

Bond It, the manufacturer of sealants, adhesives and other building chemicals, has made another major investment into its business.

Following a £1m investment into its distribution infrastructure in Q4 2012 and a further investment of £250,000 into additional technology to produce powder-based products such as floor levelling compounds in 2013, the company has now invested a further £250,000 into a new cartridge filling, packing and labelling plant.

The new plant, which is both state-of-the-art and fully automated, will enable Bond It to significantly increase production volumes on some of its bestselling lines including its GB PRO super high strength adhesive and sealant, and The Gist - a multi-purpose sealant available in five different colours.

Bond It has made this latest investment in order to accommodate rapidly growing demand for its cartridge packaged products. It will also use the new plant to pursue new product development opportunities and to further ambitious plans for additional success and growth.

Speaking of this latest investment, David Moore, managing director at Bond It, said: "Bond It has continued to go from strength to strength over recent years, despite the difficult, and thankfully now recovering, financial climate.

"We attribute this success to a combination of factors including our products' ability to offer all the performance, quality and technical innovation of the market leading brands, as well as our position as a large, and crucially, independent manufacturer - enabling us to be more customer focused and more responsive in meeting customer needs.

"The new cartridge filling and labelling plant will be instrumental in helping us to build on this track record and is now fully commissioned and making an important contribution to our success. So much so, that we've just placed a second order - representing a further investment of £250,000 - into another similar packaging and filling machine."
