Site Expansions

When the Knitwire Group first moved over to Runcorn 15 years ago, we instantly expanded our new factory by 50% in order to ensure that we had enough room for all of our production equipment. We never thought that we would be looking towards another expansion, yet here we are! Having outgrown our original expansion, we are now expanding our factory by a further 1/3rd of its current size! The growing doesn’t stop there, however, as we are also building a further 5 offices, a new board room and are currently in the middle of building 8 new knitting machines to work on new projects for Catalytic Support Systems, with a further 18 scheduled to be built after these! There is a bright future ahead for the Knitwire Group and we hope to see the company continue to...

Our new extension to the Knitwire building, along with a recent concrete mezzanine level and pre-fabricated garage, has helped to alleviate the difficulty.In addition, further expansion is being considered for our automotive...
