UK’s best best contract powder coating facility?

salop powder coating shrewsburyArrowsmith Marketin’s Gareth Edwards was treated to a tour of one of  the (perhaps the) top contract powder coating facilities in the UK.

Salop Powder Coatings based in Shrewsbury made an major investment in 2014 to provide state of the art equipment.  The initial intention was strengthen the company’s ability to meet the requirements of existing customers.  The quality of Salop’s work and it’s ability to deal with both short runs and large scale production has drawn in many new clients from a diverse variety of sectors.

People have also been very impressed with the idea that Salop can match any colour you want from either the off-the-shelf palette or by mixing.

The whole facility, both coating and the impressive pressings and assemblies area, shows that British manufacturing is far from dead.  In fact the shop floor is a hive of activity producing all manner of components, fittings and assemblies for some very well known UK and global brands. Sadly Salop isn’t allowed to say publicly who they are, but think” high end saloons and sports cars” and your imagination will probably be sending you in the right direction.

Arrowsmith was on assignment with The National B2B Centre as part of the Optimising Business Broadband project for Shropshire and Staffordshire.  OBB is supporting small businesses in these areas with workshops, content and face to face to consultancy.  If you are a qualifying business that could be you.
