The huge increase in demand for Clarons highly successful range
of PTFE products has led to a major expansion of the production
facilities at the specialist site in Paignton, Devon.
The purpose designed building has been commssioned to meet this
increase in demand as well as to enhance existing production capabilities
and the quality of service for which Claron are renowned.
The new building has also allowed a major re-structuring of the
existing production areas for a more co-ordinated approach to
the three key areas of production thereby improving output across
all the product ranges.
This major expansion has also provided further facilities for
the continued growth of the company into high technology fields.
The purpose built structure provides the strictly controlled environment
so fundamental for the production of high quality components by
using the latest technology for heating, lighting and ventilation.
A very strict control of the
working environment is necessary for the accurate manufacture
of P.T.F.E. components. This requirement was provided for by the
installation of 3 split-system Heat-Pump air conditioner units,
together with ventilating and circulatory fans, and so provides
the means of maintaining a specific temperature to very close
tolerances throughout the summer and winter months.
The lighting system is based upon high level sodium units which
react to the outside available light so taking account of environmental
requirements and also maintaing good fixed level of interior light.
All production equipment is serviced with power and compressed
air etc. through service channels to maximise the floor and air
The new factory building almost doubles the previously available
production area and gives Claron the means for expansion into
the new Millennium and beyond through the use of a first class
facility specifically designed for the manufacture of quality
