Waterloo increases capacity

The Waterloo factory in Aylesford, Kent includes design and engineering, manufacturing, two test labs, paint shop facilities and technical support.

Waterloo Air Products has boosted its capacity to support customers following significant growth in demand for air terminal devices.

According to the company, the major investment at its Kent factory has strengthened its ability to offer a fast, reliable supply of the biggest range of standard and bespoke products available as demand continues to grow.

With its team increasing by 25 per cent in the second half of 2016, Waterloo has reorganised its factory space to ramp up capacity for greater speed and flexibility throughout the entire production process. It also means it can manufacture more products at the same time.

The investment has added an additional 1,000m2 of space – with extra manufacturing workstations, additional warehousing for storing materials and finished products and a revamped paint shop. The packing area has also been doubled.

Chairman of Waterloo Rick Edmondson said: “Customer support is key and this latest investment is all about delivering the best possible service.”

“We’re seeing increased interest across our entire range, including standard and custom-designed products, so we’re manufacturing a broader mix of air terminal devices. That means more painting, more packing and more deliveries.

“Our factory-wide investment is integrated across all departments to make sure products go out on time and to the highest standard.

“We’ve built in real flexibility so we can make a greater number of different products at the same time, paint more products, and store more products to meet customers’ needs for fast, reliable delivery. 

“We’ve also expanded our team to fuel the huge opportunities customers are seeing in the construction sector, and their need for high-quality air terminal devices.”

New equipment includes a high-capacity, programmable cross-cut saw to support precise manufacturing and a new packing machine.  There are major additions to the paint shop, too, with a new drying oven, auto-spraying equipment, a waste recover system and a manual booth for short-run orders.
