Investment in New Georg Slitting Line

SPM has invested over £1.5 million in state of the art equipment and larger premises in order to enhance capacity and accommodate further growth.

Steel Processing Midlands (SPM), has invested in a state of the art slitting line, supplied by internationally renowned Georg UK, which once installed will enable SPM to increase business growth and expansion plans.

The slitting line, which is currently being manufactured by Wolverhampton based Georg UK, is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2015 and forms a large part of SPM’s  growth plans for the next 12 months.

As well as the investment in new machinery SPM are planning a purpose built extension to their works, giving them a total unit size of almost 50,000 sq ft. The company expects that the extra space and associated growth will create further jobs and advanced opportunities for existing employees.

Georg UK have established themselves as a premier manufacturer of coil processing equipment, and an important factor in the selection of Georg for SPM was their location in the West Midlands, which was extremely important for SPM when planning the implementation of a project of this nature.

Kevin Haynes, Managing Director of SPM: “Georg’s experience in manufacturing this type of equipment ensures that strength and precision are inherently designed into the line and only suitable quality materials are used in the key areas of it.  This will give us a slitting line that will be ready for the challenges of modern slitting, and this, coupled with the support that a local manufacturer can offer, made choosing Georg a relatively easy decision.”

We expect that this two-stage growth plan will improve output by 50%, allowing us to develop from 40,000 tonnes per annum to 60,000 whilst maintaining the service levels and reactiveness required to supply these sectors effectively and build our reputation further.
