Fibre Extrusion Technology to set up R&D centre

Fibre Extrusion 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 product development.

FET’s clients 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, FET’s manufacturing capacity will increase by more than 50% to cope with customer demand. 

Substantial 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 FET’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.
