Shower tray manufacturer, JT, has announced an investment of £1million, following another successful year of sales and growth.
Leeds-based JT has revealed plans for new manufacturing capital investment as well as staff training and a new apprenticeship scheme. The record investment will strengthen the British manufacturing capability and team skills, creating a state-of-the-art site that will deliver innovative, design-led products to the UK bathroom market.
The investment in technology, worth approximately £1million, will support planned new product development over the next 12 months and deliver a revolutionary quality new product to meet customer specifications and demand.
Founded in 1988, JT now makes one in five shower trays for the UK, and this seven figure investment will further enable the brand to meet the growing demand from both UK and international customers.
Paul Crossley, Managing Director of JT, said: “This investment is the projection of our proud 26 year history and will not only build on our quality service to our customers, but also lead the market in design and innovation.
“We know the quality of our design and innovative features in our products have made JT a British manufacturing success and with this investment, we hope to exceed our customers’ expectations and really build on our position as the UK’s number one, not only for product and quality, but for service and efficiency. We have ambitious growth plans and this investment will support the ambition of our multi-skilled team.”
