Edgetech benefits from Quanex investment

Edgetech is on course to complete a significant two-year investment in its manufacturing facilities, with the support of parent company Quanex.

Quanex has invested more than £4million into Edgetech’s UK and German facilities.

Edgetech Coventry has concentrated on updating and improving its manufacturing capabilities to keep up with growing demand. To support this aim, it has also upgraded its internal testing equipment, which will be essential in developing and refining future product innovation.

Edgetech Heinsberg has also sought to further expand and increase its market share in mainland Europe and the Asia Pacific regions. It has installed an additional Super Spacer manufacturing line and is in the process of commissioning a new vapour barrier and tape slitting capacity, while also ordering its second dedicated silicone compound mixing cell.

To support this expansion, it has secured a new building to house the additional products and is in the process of investing in a new R&D facility to drive new product development, customer support, and quality.

Edgetech’s managing director, Chris Alderson, commented: “Thanks to Quanex’s support, Edgetech has continued to thrive, despite the challenges our industry has faced in the last few years.

“Through these recent investments, Edgetech will have the capacity and infrastructure to better support our valued customers with additional services, whilst constantly developing new products and improving quality and our technical capabilities.

“It will guarantee that Edgetech, as part of Quanex, will remain in an excellent position to seize the opportunities ahead in the UK and Europe.”
