On the 3rd of May 2012, Wall Colmonoys new 23,500ft2 state-of-the-art machine shop was officially opened by Wales’ First Minister, Rt. Hon Carwyn Jones M.P., following a 2million pound grant from the Welsh Government, underpinning the company’s £9m expansion.
Driven by the rising demand for our products and services, the investment will add capacity, advanced processes and equipment while achieving “Lean Manufacturing” initiatives – increasing the quality, speed and efficiency of production. The Investment will safeguard existing and create new jobs.
Bill Clark, Wall Colmonoys Chairman & CEO accompanied the First Minister who unveiled a plaque to commemorate the event. “The decision to expand here in Pontardawe is a great boost for the manufacturing in Wales” explained Rt. Hon Carwyn Jones.
The expansion builds on the metallurgical history of the Pontardawe Alloy Site, Swansea Valley, where Wall Colmonoy’s European Headquarters is located.
To commemorate the launch, we have created a video and a online photo album with footage taken from the day. Please enjoy!
