Investment Peak Scientific Increases Manufacturing Capacity for Gas Generators
The British manufacturer of laboratory grade gas generators Peak Scientific, has recently expanded the manufacturing facilities at their Glasgow headquarters.
Glasgow/UK — The manufacturing facility of Peak Scientific's Glasgow site has been increased from 8500 square foot to just under 12,500 square foot. This expansion is to allow the company to increase their production, improve local employment opportunities and meet growing demand, both now and into the future.
The company stated that it has seen an increase in production output of up to 37 percent which can be attributed to the expansion alongside operational efficiencies and production process improvements made at the sites across the Clyde Valley in Scotland.
Charlie Street, Peak's Facilities Manager, said: “I was approached to find out what it would take to remove the wall in order to increase capacity and, once contractors were engaged and all structural engineering was approved, we managed to increase our floorspace by 44 percent in just two weeks.”
With increasing demand for gas generators among its global customer base, the company's decision to expand their manufacturing floor by almost 50 percent is to allow them to meet the challenges of today’s market. Peak offers LC-MS and GC instrument manufacturers with gas generators to supply their instruments and this expansion, along with a new streamlined process, is to continue to strengthen these partnerships, the company announced.
