Edale expansion adds 2nd manufacturing plant
Increasing sales has caused British press maker Edale to open a second manufacturing plant near its headquarters in Romsey, England.
The new space, about 300 square meters, will be used to construct the company’s Alpha and Beta flexo presses. The original factory, of about 2,000 square meters, will be used to manufacture Sigma presses.
Other signs of growth at Edale include the elevation of James Boughton from joint managing director to chief executive officer, a new position; and the expansion of the work force in marketing, sales and engineering. New agents and sales people have been retained in overseas markets, including a network of American agents headed by Mike Golas of Apium.
“Following our recent Sigma sale into the US, our confidence in our 21st Century flexo range and the backing of our support structure, we are in no doubt that Edale will become a real alternative to those companies already established in the market,” says Boughton.
Edale also has new agents in Thailand, the Benelux countries, India, and South Africa. A division has been opened in France with permanent staff members. These complement existing agents in Poland, Germany, Russia, Italy, Spain, Australia, Switzerland, Greece, Turkey, Israel, Argentina, Portugal, Mexico, Canada, as well as Ireland and the UK.
