SKELMERSDALE, England—Trelleborg A.B.'s offshore product operation plans to expand its manufacturing capabilities and a factory in Skelmersdale to handle more demanding subsea applications.
The producer of polymer and syntactic foam-based products for the offshore oil and gas industry said it virtually will double the size of its more-than 40,000-sq.-ft. plant in the city.
It also will upgrade and add new equipment at the facility.
"As the industry continues to move towards ever-more demanding subsea applications, it becomes even more essential that we are best placed to meet their growing demands, not only in terms of capacity, but in terms of developing innovative, cost-effective solutions that provide the upmost quality and performance," according to Ray Cann, operations director for Trelleborg's offshore United Kingdom business.
