UK-based tube-bending company Unison Ltd. is increasing its manufacturing capacity by opening a new factory in Virginia. The facility will mark Unison’s second manufacturing facility and firmly establish its production capabilities in the United States.
The new factory in Danville is intended to support the activities of the plant in North Yorkshire, which has witnessed a considerable manufacturing growth that is expected to continue for the foreseeable future. Unison will invest $5.2 million to build the facility.
“We are incredibly excited about the benefits this facility will give our existing and future customers,” says Julian Kidger, joint managing director. “Unison invented the ‘all electric tube bending machine’ and then enhanced that technology with unique complimentary products and after-market services. With this U.S. venture, we intend to lead tube bending solutions’ innovation.”
