Peli Products has doubled the size of their office and facilities at its UK Engineering branch, Peli-Hardigg, at Brookfield Industrial Estate, Ashford, Kent to 40,000 square feet.

“We have enjoyed some tremendous success in the past few years and, looking forward, we anticipate this growth to further accelerate over the coming years. To address this surge in demand for our solutions we have had to not only expand and modernise our site, but also bring in the latest equipment to increase our productivity and further enhance the excellence and leading-edge of our products,” says Piero Marigo, Peli Products EMEA Managing Director.

Advanced Case Solutions

Out of its facility in Ashford and across its engineering centres in Europe, Peli-Hardigg offers the widest array of Advanced Case Solutions in the industry starting from its portfolio of more than 500 sizes of rotomolded cases. Its technical packaging division designs and manufactures reusable shipping and storage cases and containers for weapons, missiles, aero engines and spares, providing protection in the most extreme operating conditions. An experienced team of over 30 engineers and technicians meet customer specifications and anticipate deployment conditions.

Adds Piero Marigo: “The increase in space has also allowed us to create a more efficient manufacturing process – increasing the foam fabrication and foam assembly areas as well as doubling the size of our custom design area, a true differentiator for us in the market. Engineers can customise every point of the designs of the protective system from shock and vibration attenuation to impact protection and operational logistics according to individual product specifications, usage and environmental analysis. As part of our ambitious, multi-year development plan and our focus on innovative solutions, Peli-Hardigg will also increase further the size of its engineering department over the coming months”.

Twin head CNC router

As part of the expansion - which took just ten weeks to complete - Peli Hardigg has invested in a new twin head CNC router to give further capacity for its customised foam area of the business.  In addition to this, Peli has been working alongside Schmitz Foam Products BV, who in partnership have installed a foam shredder into the Peli-Hardigg facility.  The foam shredder allows Peli-Hardigg to greatly reduce its waste going to landfill, allowing its biggest waste source to be fully recycled into sports impact equipment.
