Top: This aerial shot clearly shows the size of the Rutland Plastics factory site following the completion of the redevelopment. In the foreground to the left is the new warehouse complete with 900 Photovoltaic (solar) panels. At the rear, to the right, can be seen the engineering department containing the newly expanded toolroom
In 2015 work commenced on a new 30,000 square feet warehouse. Following its completion at the end of the year, plans were put in place to move the toolroom to the old warehouse, along with the maintenance department. This would not only mean an enlarged toolroom making it possible to manufacture more mould tools in-house, but also free up space in the production area which would permit a more efficient layout and provide room for additional moulding machines in the future.
Below: The Rutland Plastics factory can be seen in the foreground of this shot that also shows the wonderful Rutland Water in the background. The reservoir is the largest in the UK by surface area (by capacity is Kielder reservoir) and is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, it is also home to the first ospreys reintroduced into England in 1996, including one called Mr Rutland. We are lucky to be located in such a beautiful part of the country yet conveniently situated for the A1 and wider motorway network.
