Precision Refrigeration plans to reconfigure its UK factory as part of a £250,000 investment aimed at expanding its production capabilities.
The company intends to restructure the way its factory is laid out, and the way fridge units are manufactured, to meet a rise in demand from customers, it said.
Nick Williams, managing director of Precision, said the company had grown through difficult market conditions and uncertain global times and the investment would help it stay on that trajectory.
“We have seen our sales increase by 25% year on year over the last 10 years, and we forecast this increase to continue going forward. With our continued success and growth ambitions, we are also announcing that we will be recruiting an additional 30% employees in the factory, to help with the growing demand of our products,” he commented.
Precision’s factory is based in Thetford, Norfolk, and has been operating since 2008. It employs close to 60 staff.
The brand recently launched its first A+ fridge in addition to the several A energy rated models already in its commercial refrigeration range.
In addition, all official energy tests conducted by Precision are to Climate Class 4 conditions, but the team also tests, where appropriate, those refrigerators to a Climate Class 5 environment, confirming their ability to operate in heavy duty conditions (40C/40% Relative Humidity).
