The 8,000m2 expansion of Wavin’s Chippenham site has been opened by Mexican Ambassador Julián Ventura Valero.
The expansion of Wavin’s Chippenham site has been officially opened by His Excellency, Ambassador of Mexico to the United Kingdom, Julián Ventura Valero. The expansion follows a multi-million pound investment by Wavin’s Mexican parent company, Mexichem.
The 8,000m2 expansion is comprised of four new bays, designed to drive productivity improvements in the factory. The enhanced capabilities at the site will also enable Wavin, a leading manufacturer of plastic piping systems, to better respond to the changing needs of the market and its customers in a more flexible and efficient way.
Speaking about the expansion, His Excellency, Ambassador Ventura said, “It was fantastic to celebrate the investment that a Mexican company, Mexichem, is making in high-tech manufacturing on a global scale. It was a pleasure to open the expansion and witness the positive impact Mexichem’s investment has made to Wavin’s site in Chippenham, enabling the factory to expand and for the company to continue to innovate and support both the industries it serves and the communities it is part of.”
Brent Nichols, Manufacturing Director, Fluent Europe at Wavin, said, “It was an honour to be joined by His Excellency Julián Ventura Valero at the opening of our new site expansion. The facility will streamline our supply chain and improve our service offering to customers. We’re looking forward to seeing the positive impact this investment will have across the Wavin business in years to come.”
