More manufacturing space for Manuplas

Plymouth-based Manuplas has expanded with a new facility after seeing increased demand for its productions following its acquisition by Advanced Insulation. The new facility will enable it to service the demand for new subsea buoyancy products as well as providing more manufacturing space for marine products including buoys and modular bow fender systems for offshore wind farm service vessels. The 50,000 sq ft unit on Estover Road will more than double the space of its existing facility, with 80 per cent earmarked for manufacturing. Advanced Insulation acquired the business in April 2014 with £850,000 in funding from Santander Corporate & Commercial. Manuplas general manager Stephen Ward said: 'The growth of the renewables industry, particularly offshore wind farms, has driven us to spend many years researching and developing leading concepts for modular fendering systems that are mounted on wind farm support and crew vessels. With these new solutions already proving popular, and demand for our existing portfolio strong, extra space and additional manufacturing facilities will help to future proof the company.'
