UK parts manufacturer Linecross Group has invested £3.1m (€3.5m) in its production plant in Rutland, East Midlands of England, to mark its 50th anniversary.

The manufacturer of vacuum-formed thermoplastic, polyurethane and injection moulded components said the investment was made in new equipment and a number of “innovative new products for several global brands”.

As part of the project, significant investment has been made in three of vacuum forming machines, one of which will be dedicated to twin sheet forming.

A waterjet trimming centre has also been relocated from the Linecross Cannock site to form part of a manufacturing cell for a large new automotive programme.

Linecross supplies parts to a number of industries, including the automotive segment, leisure and speciality industries, with some of its clients including luxury car makers Bentley and Aston Martin.

Commenting on the advances of the Linecross Group, chairman David Austin said the latest investment in infrastructure and technology at the Rutland headquarters showed the company’s “commitment to remaining at the forefront of new plastic and composite materials and technology.”
