MTC to build cleanroom for contract packer

Wasdell Packaging will open new building in May

MTC Insulation Solutions has been awarded the second phase of a £2m project after its initial factory design enabled contract packaging company Wasdell Packaging to cut its production times.

The Solihull, West Midlands-based design and build specialist constructed a 5,574m2 factory for Wasdell last August. The A+, BRE Green Guide-rated factory exceeds Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and has been such a success that the company has now moved into 24/7 working and requires a new cleanroom.

In the second phase, MTC will build an 800m2 cleanroom, including seven production lines, insulated walls, ceilings, a mezzanine extension and ventilation work to prevent over-cooling within the plant.

The £500,000 project is expected to be completed in May and will increase Wasdell Packaging’s capacity by a further 75%.

Geoff Daren, commercial director at MTC Insulation Solutions, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded the second phase of this project. The plant was specifically designed to allow future expansion and we’re pleased Wasdell Packaging has grown so quickly and is now working 24 hours a day, 5 days a week with plans to introduce weekend shifts.”
