Purpose Built Pro2000 Switchboard – Innovia FilmsSpencer Yates
Company: Innovia Films | Location: Leicestershire | Sector: Finance
Proteus Industrial supplied two purpose built Pro2000 switchboards to distribute 400v power throughout the state of the art Innovia Security facility as part of the programme.
In March 2014, Innovia Films announced that they had signed a contract with the Bank of England for Innovia Security to supply Guardian® polymer substrate for the next generation of £5 and £10 bank notes and as a result, they are working to construct an Innovia Security plant on land adjacent to their Wigton, Cumbria BOPP facility. The plant is expected to be completed and operational by 2016 and will result in 70 to 80 new jobs.
Proteus Industrial switchgear has supplied Innovia Films since 2010 in an on-going programme of replacing much of their old switchgear with the latest, and in some cases totally bespoke, control equipment. By working closely with Neville Cox, Electrical Engineering Manager – OPP and his electrical team at Innovia, a new order has just been placed by City Electrical Factors (CEF) Carlisle branch, for two purpose built Pro2000 switchboards to distribute 400v power throughout the state of the art Innovia Security facility as part of the programme.
Designed and built in the Proteus factory in Telford, Neville was able to see his specification being made during a recent visit. “As a British manufacturer ourselves it is great to be able to talk and actually see our own panel being built” said Neville, “I cannot think of another company left in the UK that could offer this service”.
