Fibre Extrusion Technology to set up R&D centre
Fibre Extrusion Technology Ltd (FET) has announced the construction of a new purpose-built Research & Development (R&D) Centre to enable continued growth through innovation.
Technology Ltd (FET) – the Leeds (UK) based exporter of specialist extrusion
equipment for the textile, medical and composite sectors – has announced the
construction of a new purpose-built Research & Development (R&D) Centre
to enable continued growth through innovation. The new centre will provide
state-of-the-art facilities, a Visitor Centre and Process Development
Laboratory for client testing and product development. Sales, administration
and design departments will also be there.
This modern two-storey
development will provide state-of-the-art facilities, including a Visitor
Centre and enhanced Process Development Laboratory (PDL) for client testing and
frequently spend time for on-site participation in development trials and
technical sales meetings. The Visitor Centre is designed to make their stay
more efficient and comfortable. Sales, administration and design departments
will also be housed in the new building.
The addition of
the Visitor Centre will free up a considerable amount of space for production
and other facilities in the existing premises. This major refurbishment phase
for the existing premises is scheduled for completion at the end of 2021. As a
result, FETâ€™s manufacturing capacity will increase by more than 50% to cope
with customer demand.
year-on-year growth has driven this initiative and provided the opportunity to
equip the company infrastructure for the future. Sustainability has been at the
forefront of FETâ€™s growth, supporting customers in their
development of sustainable textiles and this principle is reflected in the
choice of building materials and products for the Visitor Centre.
The new centre
is expected to be opened in the first quarter of 2022.
