The labelling and barcode solutions provider has announced the opening of a dedicated manufacturing site and visitor centre.

Previously located in Crewe, Cheshire, the business has relocated to a larger site on Cheshire Green Industrial Park in Wardle.

Established in 1997, the spotlight is now firmly placed on the company’s growth and evolution, with the new facilities having been fully fitted out to meet the manufacturing demands of the business.

“Cobalt Systems is entering an exciting growth phase, fortified by the investment in our brand-new, dedicated manufacturing facility in Wardle, Cheshire along with an expanding team and continuous product development,”​ commented the business’ director and founder, Tony Hunt.

Hunt added that the new premises will enable the firm to increase its manufacturing capabilities and deliver a strong level of support for its partners and distributors.

“The benefits for our customers are huge,” ​he continued. “It means reduced lead times from order to delivery and significantly improved manufacturing efficiency. Our investment in on-site CNC machinery will also create cost and time effective bespoke component production.”

The new premises include a visitor centre and demonstration suite to offer existing and prospective customers insight into the business’ operations.

The company is also taking this opportunity to further solidify its position in the automation arena, focusing heavily on the development greener technology to achieve this.

“There’s a definite appetite for greener technology,”​ added Hunt, who explained its focus will be placed on low-energy, electric tools and linerless options to reduce material waste, with demos soon to be available at the new visitor centre.

He concluded: “We have a strong heritage in robust and quality print and apply manufacturing and we look forward to being able to showcase that in a real way, getting customers on site to see how we work and experience the solutions we develop in person.”
