Flying visit

Dr Peter Mrosik, owner and CEO of Profine Group, flew in to visit the new Profine UK facility in Huthwaite, to see the scale of operations and the newly acquired brands and systems.

The new UK operation is one of the largest subsidiaries in the group, boasting the new brands of Evolve, Legend and Warmcore, alongside Kömmerling. During his visit Dr Mrosik saw several Kömmerling 70 tools running in the extrusion hall next to other profiles and accessories. It was also a similar story in the foil lamination facility, as the business looks to fulfill the considerable growth in post-lockdown demand over recent weeks and months.

“After many years of consideration, we now have a UK extrusion facility that I am in no doubt will prove a platform for further growth,” Peter said. “Credit should be given to the team in the way in which the deal was concluded and subsequently production commencing within 24 hours of the deal.”

Gareth Jones, managing director of Profine UK, said: “It was a privilege to have the owner of the group over, while at the same time observing safe working practices. He sees great potential for us in the UK and now it’s our job to help realise this through further investment and hard work.”
