The state-of-the-art facility will provide SPP with a higher rated power supply, eliminating the need for generator hire. A new packing and despatch area with two 25ft cranes will free up a further 60% of existing floor space to build more pumps. A new paint spray booth is also planned for the facility, and a higher capacity test well will offer improved capability, health and safety and efficiency for the company.
 
“The funding will help us to realise our vision for the new facility, giving us much more capacity, improving efficiency and reducing lead times - but most importantly will allow us to manufacture solutions that meet our customer specifications far more effectively,” said SPP Pumps site director Ken Winn.
 
SPP Pumps is a subsidiary of India’s Kirloskar Brothers Ltd.
