Further to the £4.5m investment in its Doncaster manufacturing facility in 2017, with a new semi-automated shot blast and paint facility Montracon have announced further investment in its Doncaster site. The company has reintroduced refrigerated trailer manufacturing into a production facility on its existing Doncaster site; creating a centre of excellence for its entire bodied trailer offering.The expansion of the site will allow production capacity to rise to approximately 80 units a week on a single shift basis with an additional production line and 2500 square metres of factory space created.
Montracon views this as a positive step within its overall business strategy with numerous synergies being highlighted throughout the company. The latest technologies within trailer manufacturing and production flow processes are already being implemented at Doncaster and it makes economic sense to reintroduce production of its refrigerated product into Doncaster thus gaining significant economies of scale.
After securing two significant orders from rental companies in the last quarter 2018 Montracon has proven the new production facility can handle the additional production requirements and is now actively back in the refrigerated product market place.
