Weston-super-Mare-based sous vide equipment specialist, Clifton Food Range, has added to its factory facility.
At the end of December it took delivery of a new computerised punching machine, which entered into full operation from the beginning of January.
The company took the step to increasing its manufacturing capacity to accommodate new opportunities created by greater demand for its products globally.
The latest punching machine joins an existing unit, which should now enable Clifton to respond quickly to any challenges ahead.
The firm believes that this new acquisition strengthens its position as a leading British manufacturer of sous vide cooking equipment and temperature control products for the science world.
