Investment sees turnover leap at Gloucester firm
A GLOUCESTER business which spent £400,000 in fully automated machinery is reaping the benefits of its investment.
Gloucester MP Richard Graham visited manufacturer of sealed glass units Hourglass Seal at Gloucester Business Park last week to mark the first anniversary of the investment.
Since the machinery was installed, the company has successfully expanded production to 3,000 double-glazed units a week and increased turnover by 11 per cent.
During his tour of the factory, Mr Graham viewed the state-of-the-art For.El Super Spacer application line, which incorporates the very latest technology, including a flood fill gas press and sealing robot.

The new machinery is capable of producing the highest performing and most cost-effective energy-efficient sealed units.
The MP met many of the 25-strong Hourglass team.
The machine, which is the only one of its kind in the region, will help the business to grow further and secure existing jobs , whilst potentially creating demand for new posts in the future.
Kevin Averiss, managing director at Hourglass Seal, said: "The last year has been a tremendously exciting time for Hourglass and we were very pleased to celebrate the success of the business since installing the new line. The machine has helped us to build on our strong reputation for quality and innovation."
