We Just Got BIGGER (a whole lot bigger)

To meet the growing demand from our customers and as part of our overall expansion plans we are very pleased to announce that we recently completed the first phase of our latest relocation plans. On 10th December we took possession of a new facility in Dartford. The new building has provided us with the scope to expand many departments within Kentec. Firstly we have successfully relocated our entire sheet metal manufacturing department into the new facility. In doing so we have increased the area by three fold and as a result we have already seen significant improvements in productivity and output.

Our Powder Coating plant has also been given a new lease of life and is now located in our new building along with our silk screening department which has been doubled in size. This is not the end of the story as we are planning further changes and to relocate more departments into the new facility over the coming year.

We were delighted to hold an official opening ceremony in the new building which was attended by several industry partners along with key associates who have supported Kentec over many years. The building was officially opened by Dr Howard Stoate MP for Dartford assisted by Councilor Ian Armitt the Mayor of Dartford.
Managing Director Ray King said “it is really pleasing to see this new facility up and running in such a short period of time. An enormous amount of effort has gone into getting this new facility prepared ready for production and it is particularly remarkable that we did it in just 10 weeks! The new facility will help meet our customers growing demand for Kentec products”

New Powder Coating Plant Success

Not only did we find a new home for our aging Powder Coating plant we completely replaced it! As part of our relocation plans we have installed a new semi automatic power coating plant. The new facility not only increases our capacity by some 5 fold it produces a better and more consistent finish.
