New home for West Midlands manufacturer

Silicone components manufacturer Artel Rubber Holdings has completed the construction of its brand new production facility in Alcester.

The new 18,000 sq ft premises, which have been funded with support from Royal Bank of Scotland, will enable the growing business to increase its production capacity to meet rising demand.

Located on Springfield Business Park in Alcester, the building is twice the size of the company’s previous home in Bidford on Avon.

Owned by directors Simon Lavin and Jacques Commeny, Artel Rubber Company is manufactures silicone components for businesses in the automotive, rail, defence, marine, F1, food and pharmaceutical industries for over 24 years.

Simon Lavin, executive director of Artel Rubber Holdings Limited, said: “In recent years we have achieved significant growth which meant that we had begun to outgrow our existing premises.

“Given the strength of the local manufacturing industry and the demand for industrial sites, we struggled to find a property that would meet our existing production needs and provide space to accommodate the business in the future as it grows. 

“As a result we decided to construct our own purpose built facility which we couldn’t be happier with. The new premises are ideal and will meet our needs for the foreseeable future.”

The firm received funding from Royal Bank of Scotland.

Adam Smith, senior relationship manager at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “The new premises are fantastic and I am pleased that we have been able to support Artel Rubber Holdings to make this investment into their future.

“Building their own purpose built facility was definitely the right move for the company to take and the property will allow them to continue to drive growth and increase production.”
