Flexi expands production capacity

Flexi Narrow Aisle has expanded is production capacity at its Tipton factory by almost 50 per cent to cope with demand.

The 2.5 acre site now provides over 50,000 sq ft of factory space.

Managing director, Peter Wooldridge, said: “We have invested a sizable sum in our plant. In addition to the factory extension, we have upgraded our spare parts store and invested in our finished goods dispatch area and our offices – particularly our IT facilities.”

Flexi trucks have been produced at Tipton since the early 1990s. Last year saw record orders with sales up 40 per cent on the previous year – a trend which the company says has been sustained in the first quarter of 2013.

The past five years have seen the growth of the market for Flexi in Europe and sales have also been in India, South Africa, Middle East plus the Americas.
