Manufacturing Capacity increase offers Jobs boost and meets Demand
Mar 15 2022
Leading global laboratory grade gas generators manufacturer Peak Scientific has recently expanded its Glasgow-based manufacturing facilities from 8,500 square foot to just under 12,500 square foot which will enable the company to increase its production and local employment opportunities, while providing for both present and future and supply demands.
The company have seen an increase in production output of up to 37% which can be attributed to the expansion alongside operational efficiencies and production process improvements made at the company’s sites across the Clyde Valley in Scotland, UK.
Charlie Street, PEAK’s Facilities Manager, said, “I was approached to find out what it would take to remove the wall in order to increase capacity and, once contractors were engaged and all structural engineering was approved, we managed to increase our floorspace by 44% in just two weeks.”
Increasing demand for gas generators among its global customer base, spurred the company’s decision to expand the manufacturing floor capacity at its headquarters location by almost 50%, in order to meet the challenges of today’s market while providing efficient support for its customers. As a supplier to leading LC-MS and GC instrument manufacturers, this expansion, along with a new streamlined process, will continue to strengthen these partnerships.
PEAK’s CEO, Jonathan Golby, commented, “We are pleased with the quick and smooth expansion of our manufacturing facilities at PEAK HQ. The investment that was made will directly benefit our customers across the globe as well as the local community by opening up new employment opportunities for the area. This expansion will allow us to remain the leading manufacturer of gas generators for laboratories around the world well into the future.”
