New moulding machines for Hozelock

Hozelock, a Birmingham-based manufacturer of garden watering, spraying and pond equipment, has announced a £1m investment in new injection moulding machinery.



The new machinery includes 210, 125 and 80 tonne Demag Systec moulding machines and two Arburg 35 tonne machines, which brings the total number on the Midpoint Park site in Minworth, West Midlands, to 50.



‘Competition has never been stiffer and in order to keep our lead we need to invest continuously in new technology while improving the efficiency of our manufacturing techniques,’ said Peter Rush, Hozelock’s managing director.



In line with this improvement policy, Hozelock also made an investment in replacement production tooling alongside the commissioning of new machinery.
