Albion investment ups production

Posted on by in News

Albion Sections said a recent £1.2M investment, which included a new fully automated and dynamic Bradbury roll forming mill, will see its annual production increase to 7,000t for 2006.

“Last year we produced 5,000t,” John Jones, Managing Director of Albion Sections said. This year, due to our investment we actually have the added benefit of an additional 6,000t capacity,” he added.

The investment has also included new company software and some major remedial works at its West Bromwich facility.

“We had to relocate and remove some machinery in order to install our new processing line,” Mr Jones explains.

The new line has also provided a firm foundation to continually meet the changing demands for the usage of cold rolled products within the steel construction industry.

Mr Jones said the company has seen an increasing demand for cold rolled sections to provide solutions for existing labour intensive and heavy processes.

“We’ve seen our mix of products change in the last five years. Previously we made 80% Zed products and 10% Cee products, compared to 50% Zed and 40% Cee now,” Mr Jones said.
