Hylec's success in electronic market prompts move to bigger facilities

Hylec-APL has announced that it is moving to new expanded facilities, thanks to experiencing rapid sales growth in both the electrical and electronic markets.

The company will be remaining in Wellingborough but will move into new offices and a much larger warehouse on 26th June and has also announced capital investment in production machinery to enable it to fulfil both current and projected future demand.

Hylec’s investment in a semi-automatic production line and manufacturing equipment in China enables it to increase capacity for its successful and innovative in-line junction box, Debox SL and Debox S. Production in the current facility is already over capacity at 1.5 million Deboxes per year, but the new equipment, including injection moulding machines, cutting and labelling machines and heat shrink wrapping, will enable this to be ramped up to 4 million units per year. 

Andy Hatter, Hylec’s CEO commented: ”The move is the result of hard work by the whole Hylec team culminating in several consecutive years of successful sales across all our markets, but particularly in IP68 connectors, terminal blocks, cable glands, enclosures and motor control gear.  We took the decision to purchase our new premises, which comprise new offices and also a warehouse that is two and a half times larger than our current facility. It will have the latest racking system and additional equipment such as extra forklifts, to enable us to get products to customers in the quickest and most efficient way possible.”
