Our engineering manager, Rob Holmes, has been even busier than usual over the last few weeks as he’s installed two brand new wet grinding mills at our factory here in Sheffield.
With orders growing on a daily basis, it’s imperative that we continue to increase our production capacity and that means capital expenditure investment in the very highest quality equipment.
Explains Rob: “In order to enable us to collaborate more effectively with the team over in Blackley, we’ve added a new Bühler MMX 1 Series lab scale mill to our laboratory. There are many ongoing new product development projects and this new lab scale mill will further enhance our proactivity in this area.
“Over on the factory floor, we’ve added another Bühler MMX 3 Series production scale mill bringing our total MMX 3 Series mill count to five machines. This new mill was put into production immediately and is specifically designed to support a strategic increase in planned productivity over the coming months.”
Concludes Rob: “Thanks to continued investment from Lubrizol, we are now in an even better position to further our global growth and satisfy customers’ exacting demands in respect to their individual water-based pigmented dispersions and dispersed dye dispersions requirements.”
