Manchester-based M&I Materials has built a new facility to provide additional capacity and expand its new manufacturing line of MIDEL ester transformer fluids. The investment was made possible with help from the Greater Manchester Export Fund, delivered by The Growth Company.
The ester transformer fluid is said to support safer and more environmentally friendly electricity grids worldwide.
“We were delighted to be selected by the Greater Manchester Export Fund to receive this award, which enabled us to increase our production facilities to meet growth in demand for MIDEL around the world," says Giles Salt, CEO of M&I Materials. “As a Great British exporter, we export to world-leading companies in over 60 countries. This investment allows us to further expand our footprint and thus to also secure and create local manufacturing jobs.”
Richard Jeffery, director of business growth at the Growth Company, visited the new facility.
"M&I Materials are a fascinating company and, with a presence in Manchester since the 1940s, are one of the area’s real success stories. It’s fantastic to see this new facility and I’m looking forward to watching the business go from strength to strength," Jeffrey says.
This investment is the latest in an expansion for M&I Materials’ global footprint, which follows on from the launch of a new production facility in the United States, and the opening of Africa’s first ever ester transformer fluid factory in Johannesburg last month.
