Pland Stainless has purchased a new 4metre Bystonic Fiber Laser machine to improve productivity at its Leeds-based manufacturing unit.

This represents the latest acquisition in what will total a £500,000 investment this year on improvements to its facility.

The machine has now been installed and was commissioned during July, halfway through a year of celebrations as the business celebrates its 100th year on the same site on the Leeds ring road.

This new high-speed laser cutting system should enable precision cutting of the stainless steel raw material and improve the speed and accuracy of manufacture.

Steve Duree, MD of Pland Stainless said: “The purchase of this machine represents Pland’s commitment to investing in new technology to enhance our British factory. Made in Britain is important to us and a growing number of our clients.

“This investment demonstrates our commitment to offering best in class products made right here in Yorkshire.”

Pland Stainless designs and manufactures a range of stainless steel products, largely for the commercial sector. It supplies to the healthcare, sanitaryware, washroom, laboratory, education, catering, janitorial and secure accommodation marketplaces.
