On Thursday 24th January 2019 we celebrated the grand opening of our new manufacturing site in Wednesbury. Thirty valued industry representatives enjoyed a tour of the new facility, as well as presentations, networking opportunities and cake.
We were especially pleased to welcome Dewhurst Plc, our parent company, and many key industry representatives from the likes of Kier, Amey and Ringway as well as the Mayor of Sandwell, Councillor Joy Edis, who officially cut the ribbon to open our new facility.
“Thank you for inviting me to officially open the new manufacturing plant for TMP Solutions. It’s fantastic to see such a well-regarded company bringing its base of operations to the Wednesbury. I wish you every success in your new home.” Mayor of Sandwell, Councillor Joy Edis.
Our new 15,000 sq ft site is located in the heart of the West Midlands and is home to our state of the art rotational moulding plant. This prime location is better suited to take advantage of the fantastic transport links of the Midlands, enabling us to deliver our high-quality British made products efficiently across the country.
Secure Supply Chain
A move to the Midlands made sense. In mid-2018 one of our key manufacturing partners sadly ran into difficulties and was forced to close. However, we were able to purchase all the machinery needed to bring the whole manufacturing process in-house, and provide jobs for a proportion of the company’s skilled and experienced workers, giving us continuity of product and securing employment for the existing workforce.
“We are very proud of our new modern premises. It has taken a lot of hard work by the whole team to get to where we are now, and the future looks very bright. We are a company well known for innovation, not just in products, but in total solutions. This is an ethos we will continue, developing new solutions that benefit safety, the environment and support the local community” Dan Robinson, Managing Director TMP Solutions
