HellermannTyton to create 100 jobs in Plymouth after factory expansion
Plymouth manufacturer HellermannTyton has broken ground on phase II of a major expansion of its factory which is expected to create 100 jobs.
The multi-million-pound investment will see its site at the Plymouth International Medical and Technology Park, in Derriford, double in size to support market growth and increase its capacity.
Delayed due to the Covid pandemic, the expansion is part of HellermannTyton’s 10-year plan to reinforce its status as the leading supplier of cable management solutions.
The Plymouth site is one of two manufacturing facilities HellermannTyton operates in the UK, alongside its sister site in Manchester.
Already, more than four million components are manufactured at Plymouth every year; the expansion will see capacity increase even further. The expansion gives HellermannTyton the ideal combination of production space, warehousing, shipping docks and R&D labs.
Key manufacturing processes at the new facility will concentrate on solutions for manufacturing, industrial, earthmoving, defence and rail applications.
