As part of continued and sustained growth Tension Control Bolts Ltd is pleased to announce we are expanding our current facility in Wrexham.
The current premises, comprised of manufacturing, warehousing, testing, workshop and offices is just 7 years old. Increasing global demand for our Greenkote TCBs has meant expansion is now required to ensure we can continue to progress as a market leader in the mechanical fastener industry.
We doubled the production capacity of our coating plant to meet growing demand in 2019, and this new expansion project will provide scope for further increased output. The warehouse extension includes significant additional storage space, with a potential capacity of up to 10,000 pallets.
Quality has always been a fundamental priority for TCB. Subsequently the onsite testing laboratory has doubled in size to facilitate more extensive inhouse testing.
Similarly, the shear wrench workshop has also been expanded to provide more capacity for stock and extra workstations for customer servicing and repair requirements.
As production capacity grows, so does the team. In recent months we have been pleased to welcome several new staff members to fill various newly created roles across the business.
The new expansion project has been in the pipeline for two years and despite the setbacks due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the works are set to be completed later this summer. The pandemic has presented us many challenges, but the building extension has come just in time for TCB to maximize its contribution to the global economic recovery.
