One of Europe’s leading rubber manufacturers, SPC, has announced plans to open a new plant in Maerdy, South Wales.
SPC Operations Director, Paul Hallas, said:
“The new compounding facility represents the latest phase of our expansion plans for the growing business. It will bring ultra-clean, colour compounding expertise into the SPC fold.”
“The new plant will exploit state of the art intermeshing technology, enabling us to offer the option of non-black rubber compounds and strained materials to both existing and new customers.”
“And, with new regulatory measures coming into place, we predict this to be a future area of growth.”
The colour compounding site is due to open in early 2017 and is expected to create upto 30 new jobs in the next 2 years.
