Pasquill investment shows confidence in sector

25th May 2023

The recent announcement of a £14m investment in facilities and operations by TRA member Pasquill shows that despite the recent economic uncertainty, there’s still a lot to be positive about.

The figure includes £4.5m spent in 2022, and there are plans to invest a further £9.6m over the next two years in areas such as waste reduction, operations and customer experience.

The company’s Stoney Stanton site saw improvements last year including the installation of a Hundegger TurboDrive bringing it into line with their Bodmin and Redhill sites. The Hundeggers will help them increase capacity whilst reducing waste by 8%.

Other machinery to be installed is an AV Birch Uni-Roll at the Inverness site and £450k spent on four electric Combilift forklift trucks at Redhill, all helping to reduce carbon emissions.

Other improvements include enhanced safety guarding on saws and the purchase of a vacuum lifter at the company’s Leeds site which will eliminate the need for two people to lift boards, therefore improving manual handling safety.

TRA chief executive, Nick Boulton said: “Pasquill’s strategic investment to upgrade their operations shows the importance of investing in new machinery to improve the company’s environmental impacts. It’s also heartening to hear that safety is at the forefront of their investment policy.”

Pasquill is also planning for installation, next year,  of a Randek AutoEye line at its Redhill site which will make it the UK’s first automated truss production line.
