Redditch-based Samuel Taylor Limited (STL), a metal contacts and precision metal pressings specialist, has announced investments totaling over £500,000 in new machinery and factory space.

The investments will increase STL’s capacity and efficiency and include the purchase and commission of a Forming Machine, an 80-ton Press and an Image Dimension Measuring System.

STL has also taken on an additional 500 sq m of factory space to provide more space for its production machinery as part of a factory modernisation project.

“The business has a track record of making investments to ensure that we remain globally competitive,” said STL Sales Manager Carl Siviter. “This mindset led us to invest in the purchase and commissioning of a new Forming Machine, complete with tapping, feeder and automatic controls.

“We operate in a global marketplace with a diverse customer base, and this level of investment will provide both extra manufacturing capacity and flexibility, as some new projects move forward into mass production.”

He added that recently, STL became one of the first manufacturers in the UK to achieve the ISO 45001 accreditation, demonstrating the company’s ongoing commitment to maintaining a world class, safe working environment.

As one of UK’s leading suppliers for rail, aerospace, marine, defence and automobile sectors STL works with customers in Europe, China, the Far East, Middle East, South Asia and North America.

The investments will allow the company to diversify into new markets, such as automotive, electric vehicles, battery development and hydrogen trains.
