IEP LOOKS TO INCREASE ITS WORKFORCE
AUGUST 30 2017
Industrial Engineering Plastics Limited (IEP), founded more than 30 years ago, is one of the UK's largest and longest established plastic ductwork fabricators and is well known for its high quality workmanship and ability to meet tight deadlines.
Allan Clarke, works manager, says "Our bespoke plastic ductwork is used in universities and industrial buildings across the UK and beyond, and we work with the largest UK construction businesses. In the last six months our major projects have included a university in London, a water treatment works in Southampton and an industrial site in Oxford, as well as exporting product into Europe. We're told that the London University project was the largest of its type in the last five years, which is testament to the commitment and knowledge of our team."
Having taken on several staff in 2016 to supplement the existing workforce, IEP is now recruiting again. Clarke again "There has been a flight to quality in the last year or so, with customers recognising the benefits of partnering with a company which can meet the highest standards of quality and service. Bringing another three trainee fabricators into the team will ensure that we can meet this increased demand."
Key to the company's success has been its investment in leading edge technologies, which has made a step change in productivity and sets it aside from its peers. "IEP has embraced the future of fabrication" says Clarke, "We are well placed to meet the challenges of a dynamic and diverse market place, and we look forward to building our team in Liphook."

IEP MAKES MAJOR INVESTMENT IN STATE OF THE ART MACHINERY
JUNE 25 2015
As part of an on-going drive to focus on the growth and development of our business, we have been investing heavily in the high end machinery that makes IEP product of the best possible quality.
Our new CNC machine was recently installed and has contributed hugely to the fabrication arm of our business. This new machine allow us to produce fabricated products with even greater accuracy and consistency in measuring and precision processing.
Additionally, we now have our own in-house fibre-glassing (glass reinforced plastic) facility for the strengthening of our plastic products, enabling us to produce and deliver GRP products even more quickly.
As well as these new additions to the IEP service we also now own what we believe to be the biggest bending machine in the UK with a 3 metre width and 4 positions which means we are at the top of our game for perfect precision bending.
All of this investment means that the IEP service and product capability is rapidly developing from strength to strength, offering our clients the very best in industrial plastic fabrication in addition to the Distribution activities for which IEP is so well-known.
