UK builder Composite Mouldings (CML) has taken on larger factory premises in Southampton.

CML are refitting the factory space by making the existing doors larger to fit boats up to 30m (100ft) and re-commissioning the traversing overhead crane which the company says will “revolutionize its logistics”.

“As our company grew the old factory became cramped. We really struggled with space,” explains managing director, Warwick Buckley. “Moving is never easy but with so many exciting projects in the pipeline, everyone is very enthusiastic to get production back up and running”.

CML says that once they have settled into their new facility they will be looking to increase its work force by a third. The first phase of the refit is now complete. In the summer, the factory will be re-clad to give it a brand new appearance.

Established in 2004, CML has steadily gained a reputation for producing high quality mouldings built under surveyed conditions. The company produces fibreglass mouldings for several government bodies as well as carbon fibre epoxy mouldings for race boats and superyachts.
