Our production capacity will double and our new sheet metal and copper fabrication output, reducing lead times and increasing capacity for assembly. With a state-of-the-art powder coating paint facility installed and an extensive range of CNC machinery, complimented with a strong Engineering Design Team, Flexitech are ready for substantial growth.
Flexitech have welcomed on board several new customers from the Utility and Medtech Industry sector during the pandemic, primarily driven by our sustainable supplies, reduced lead times and quality components.
COVID challenged Flexitech to explore new ways to reduce production costs and we have been fortunate in the fact that we’ve been able to help through the provision of new manufacturing processes and product development.
In addition, Flexitech have also signed partnership agreements with Steel Suppliers, securing supply chains and retaining stock to maximise production output. It is expected 30+ New jobs will be created at the new facility.Paul Carroll – Operations Director of Flexitech
