After having recently completed the move to its new 27,000 square feet facility, automation solutions provider Stelram Engineering has now further expanded its production capacity and its team of skilled employees. These developments will enable the company to continue to provide prompt and efficient service for its fast growing customer base, as well as developing on-going projects, while offering outstanding design and manufacturing.
Based in Wakefield, Stelram is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of automation solutions particularly to the food and drink, and automotive sectors. The company has unique expertise in designing and manufacturing bespoke machinery and vision-controlled robotic systems to suit a wide variety of applications.
After securing new customer orders, some as far afield as Australia, Stelram has had to acquire yet another industrial unit, enlarging its production facilities by a further 4,500 square feet. The company is also creating a fully equipped showroom where current and potential customers will be able to see firsthand the type of machine solutions Stelram creates and put them to the test!
To go along with expansion in premises, Stelram has taken on new employees. A new design engineer, a project manager, a sales engineer, an applications manager and a new store person have joined the expanding team. Stelram has also taken on two new graduates and three placement students, who will be trained and mentored to help with this unprecedented business growth.
“After adding the first tranche of extra space to the manufacturing facility we found that our products were in such high demand that we very soon had to further increase the shop floor space,” said MD Steven Holt, “We were lucky enough to find a convenient vacant industrial unit almost next door, so now work is underway to make full use of this. We have also employed six new key members of staff and we’re on the lookout for two more. Business is definitely booming and we are very excited about the future!”
