The company, which manufactures and sells plastic compounds used in electric cables and water pipes, made the move after gaining funding through a Grant for Business Investment following free advice from Locate in Kent.
By moving to the larger Sandwich site, AEI was able to implement a new production line that saw the company more than triple productivity of its range of environmentally friendly and low toxicity cable compounds.
Mark Shaw, Managing Director of AEI Compounds, said: “This investment in our business was essential for us to remain a leading player in the global wire and cable market, where competition from low cost manufacturing economies continues to increase. The advice we received from Locate in Kent was second to none – and without the grant, we simply wouldn’t have been able to expand.”
