FORMAPLEX & AGANTO: A MATCH MADE IN MANUFACTURING HEAVEN
World class manufacturing innovators, Formaplex, are experiencing such a level of rapid growth and expansion, that they turned to Aganto to increase their internal operational space.
Hampshire-based Formaplex Group are a preferred supplier for the design and manufacture of injection-mould tooling for key Tier 1 companies supporting the high volume automotive industry throughout Europe. An experienced and dependable supplier who work with Formula One, Motorsport and aerospace industries, Formaplex’s go-getting attitude and extensive resources allows the organisation to deliver, design and offer manufacturing support to special projects.
Due to the development of the company, who also have bases in Hampshire and Portsmouth and employ over 270 people worldwide, it became essential to get more operational space - and fast.
By choosing a clear span 10x15x6.2m insulated Aganto temporary building, Formaplex now have an instant operational facility, built within just days, meaning absolutely no disruption to production levels and the provision of a safe, secure and clean environment in which to store their finished products, prior to dispatch. The additional space has allowed the company to operate at increased production levels, meeting the high standards of quality and excellence that Formaplex, and their high-profile customers, have come to expect.
Operations Director, Chris Carter, explains:
“The Aganto temporary building is a simple solution that has allowed us to increase our capacity, within a short time period, with minimum disruption to production.”
For an organisation whose goal is to be their customers’ preferred global supplier for tooling and component solutions, the ease and hassle free process of having an Aganto temporary building installed meant they could continue in the complexity of delivering innovative manufacturing techniques.
