WHS Halo: Expansion of PVCu extrusion factory

UK window profile manufacturer WHS Halo is meeting with council officials today to seek planning permission for an expansion to its factory at Minworth, West Midlands.
The company took out an advert in regional newspaper the Birmingham Post yesterday saying that it hoped to create 140 new jobs with extensions to its manufacturing and administrative centres. The PVCu extruder described the project as “multi-million pound”.
Managing director Winston Duguid said: “We are always trying to make our operations more efficient. If we get planning permission for the new space we will be able to move people from rented accommodation in the area to centralise them on our site.”
This latest news adds to a bumper set of UK investments in window profile manufacturing. Duraflex’s new £20m (E29m) factory in Tewkesbury is set to open early next year, as is Eurocell’s new mixing and extrusion facility in Alfreton, Derbyshire.
Synseal has invested £9.5m (E14m) over the last 18 months in compounding, extrusion and injection moulding at Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire.
