New 46,000 sq ft factory for Terinex Flexibles

New 46,000 sq ft factory for Terinex Flexibles -OGM Group invests £8m as part of its growth strategy

Terinex Flexibles, which has recently rebranded from QC Flexible Packaging, has started building its new £8m state of the art facility at a 3-acre new site on the Dove Valley Park, near Derby. This investment from parent company, the OGM Holdings Group, will allow for future ambitious growth and support innovation.  

The new factory will initially be 46,000 sq ft and will significantly increase capacity of the factory and warehouse and accommodate the expanding team at Terinex Flexibles. The company is expecting to increase its staff numbers  in the first year, with hires across production and engineering. The R&D department will also move from its current location at OGM in Oxford.  

Paul Wightman, group managing director of the OGM Group, says: “This investment will more than double the size of the Terinex Flexibles factory enabling for new equipment, offices and warehouse space. We have already invested in a new Comexi F2 MB flexographic printing press, which will be delivered and commissioned later this year, and we are planning to add another press. In addition to offering greater production volumes, our food, petfood and medical packaging customers will benefit from increased R&D capabilities to support their packaging innovations.”   

The new facility will have advanced sustainable energy systems such as a regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO) that efficiently recovers heat to the printing process for reuse  and the roof will be fitted with solar PV panels for generating power to operate the factory. In addition, heat will be reclaimed from the compressors to send warm air to the curing room for the lamination process and the staff and visitor car park will have electric charging points. 

Paul adds: “The new factory will optimise all of our processes.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us to build a factory with the best environmental footprint that will allow industry leading productivity and quality. We hope to be ready to move in by the end of the year.”
