Hozelock invests in improving delivery times

Garden-watering-equipment manufacturer Hozelock has made a £1m investment in its 33,400m2 Midpoint Park factory in Birmingham that will enable the company to achieve record delivery times for its hose systems, including the super-sized 30m and 40m Autoreels with automatic hose rewind.

The wall-mounted Autoreel models require the largest moulded casings, measuring 60cm in diameter, ever made by the company and a new 87-ton Demag Systec 1300T injection-moulding machine affords an enhanced production capability of more than 1,800 of these components per 24-hour cycle.
