United Caps, an international manufacturer of caps and closures, has announced it will be constructing a new manufacturing plant in Dinnington, Rotherham.
The initial facility will be 5,000 square meters, with an option to expand to 20,000 square meters as business growth demands.
Production is expected to begin at the end of 2019 and will initially focus on beverage and dairy closures, with options to add additional segments as needed. This project represents an estimated €20m investment including the first phase of machinery and is expected to increase group turnover by 15% in phase one and will initially employ 20 staff.
Benoit Henckes, CEO of United Caps, said: “We chose Rotherham because of its central location along the M1, available technical skilled people and the reasonable cost of land in that area. This will be our first plant in the United Kingdom.”
