Aztec Aerosols open new building following ongoing growth
Investment is designed to support increased demand
Following a period of sustained growth, Aztec Aerosols officially opened their latest warehouse in Crewe.
The expansion for the Crewe-based manufacturer is designed to support an increase in demand for their products, after sustained growth for over a 4-year period. The 661 sqm2 building, is based alongside their current site at Gateway Business Park and was recently officially opened by Crewe Mayor Councillor Tom Dunlop.
The new build, took 18 weeks to complete and consists of warehouse space, which will provide the firm with much needed capacity for an additional 2000 pallet spaces. The expansion was needed to meet an increase in sales and production demands for their products; which include the filling of aerosols ranging from air fresheners, brake cleaners and line marking paints.
This latest investment follows a series of major investments from their parent company Instarmac Group. With this new facility and continued growth, Aztec Aerosols are furthering their growth plans with hopes to increase the number of staff at Crewe, currently employing over 50 people. Aztec Aerosols have been based in Crewe for over 20 years, having moved their operations to the town in 1999.
The build itself was completed by local firms with Crewe structural engineer Pioneer Design and Build, leading the project and Lantern Fire and Security providing a state-of-the-art fire alarm system. The launch of the new building was also a local affair with guests treated to refreshments from Sandbach firm Blackwater & Grubb.
Paul Butcher, Sales Director at Instarmac Group commented: “The redevelopment of the land and construction of a new warehouse represents a significant investment in Aztec Aerosols by the parent company Instarmac Holdings Ltd, the building supports a strategic production capacity increase and allows higher stocking levels of critical components. Running alongside this development is the installation of a new high speed aerosol filling machine which is due to be fully operational by the end of the year. These investments will allow Aztec to triple its current production capability and provide faster more efficient service levels to its customer base.”
Crewe Mayor Councillor Tom Dunlop said: “It was a pleasure to have been invited to such a lovely event. It’s great a company of your size chose Crewe and to expand here, and future plans bringing more employment to Crewe”
Paul Chapman, Senior Investment Manager at Cheshire and Warrington Growth Hub, part of the Local Enterprise Partnership said: “It is fantastic to see the continued success of Aztec Aerosols, this latest investment will help them to further their growth plans and meet their full potential. We wish them every success and look forward to supporting them on their growth journey going forward.”
