BGM doubles production capacity

Bar Graphic Machinery has expanded its facility in Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK

Bar Graphic Machinery (BGM), a manufacturer of label and flexible packaging finishing systems and converting machines, has expanded its facility in Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK.

In September 2021, the company acquired an additional building adjacent to the current site. The expansion more than doubles the company’s production capacity and houses a new dedicated machine shop for the manufacturing and storage of components.

‘We are seeing tremendous demand for our technology, especially for our latest BGM Elite range of die-cutting inspection rewinders, and therefore needed to boost our manufacturing output,’ said Annemarie Rhodes, managing director at Bar Graphic. ‘This new facility will allow us to increase manufacturing output by at least 60 percent in year one and importantly, enables us to build bigger machines and expand on our digital finishing and flexo press ranges using the old machine shop as extra build capacity.

BGM has also invested in the fifth speed 22 tool four-axis CNC machining center to support the expansion and boost its productivity. 

‘The investment across the business is clearly significant and ensures we are able to maintain our hard-earned reputation for technology innovation and customer service excellence around the world,’ concluded Rhodes.
