Investment boosts capacity at Arville

Technical textiles specialist Arville is approaching completion of the latest phase in a major overhaul of its dedicated spread-coating plant in Bury. This second programme of investment has seen the build and installation of two additional production lines, which have doubled the facility’s available capacity.

The expansion comes hot on the heels of a £1m upgrade of the Lancashire facility last spring. With new work flooding in from the UK and overseas, the development was part of a long-term strategic plan to maintain consistent lead times in the face of growing demand.

“We produce multiple – and often very complex – specifications at any one time. Each individual job can be very different from one another, so it is important that we remain flexible and have the capacity to tackle the workload,” explained Arville spokesman Andy Smith.

“We’ve ploughed further investment into the facility to pave way for even greater growth. However, as our business evolves, it is vital that we invest not only in our plant and machinery but also our people. Alongside this is the appointment of key technical staff who will further boost the knowledge within our team.”

The appointments will take Arville to a 90-strong team, with three sites throughout the North of England. Established in 1954, the company has a customer base that covers over 50 countries worldwide.
