Capacity tripled

Allied Profiles recently expanded its manufacturing facility in Cork, Ireland.

Paul O’Sullivan, director of Allied Profiles, said: “We’re Ireland’s only trade laminator and have a purpose-built manufacturing facility specifically designed for our activities. One of our specialities is vacuum foiling. Because we’ll undertake the more challenging components – and deliver excellent results – that side of our business is growing rapidly.”

When it was clear that the company needed more space, the management team decided to expand into a unit that had just become available across the road from the main premises.

The unit offered much-improved conditions for the vacuum foiling team, with plenty of space, room to expand, an airy feel, and brighter surroundings.

“It couldn’t have worked out better, and the extra light is a bonus for a production process where precision and finish quality are paramount,” Paul said.
