Leading UK based worldwide rubber processing machine manufacturer, Barwell Global Ltd, has moved from its Papworth Everard, Cambridgeshire facility to a larger one in St. Ives, also in Cambridgeshire.

The relocation comes as a result of the company’s phenomenal growth over the past few years, which has seen a significant workforce increase, demand for spare parts, and a growing requirement for the manufacture of specialist bespoke machinery and the refurbishment of older machines.

Expanding its operation to larger and more user-friendly offices and warehousing facilities means the company can now continue to progress with its plans for further sales growth and product development as well as providing increased support to its worldwide customer base.

Managing Director Stephen Grocott comments: "The relocation of our operation to Burrel Road in St. Ives is the start of a new and exciting phase for Barwell. We've outgrown our existing premises and this move will help fulfill our future plans to remain at the forefront of innovation and technology in the industry. It will also enable us to provide even higher levels of service excellence for our customers.”

The company, which was formed in 1926, has grown to become one of the world’s largest and most well-known names in the rubber industry. With almost 6000 machines in operation globally, Barwell is a valuable source for reliable, quality machinery designed to maximise efficiency and improve productivity and profitability.

Barwell is the undisputed market leader in the manufacture of preforming equipment for the rubber and synthetic polymer industry and has been synonymous with the development of ram extrusion and preforming, and remain the acknowledged leader in this field.

Barwell has continued its legacy of innovation with the introduction of new ranges and technologies, including rubber cooling, pre-heating and rubber deflashing machine solutions, as well as enhancements to its preforming ranges.

The new address is as follows: Barwell Global Ltd, Unit 1, 9 Burrel Road, St. Ives, Cambridgeshire, PE27 3LA, England. All phone and email contact details remain unchanged.
