The last six years has seen Wham® invest £25m. in manufacturing in new buildings, product groups and, most recently, a £13.5m. investment in new production machines.

The successful manufacturing business currently exports its products to over 72 countries.

Garry Ireland, Operations Director at What More UK, said: “The new additions are fabulous. Not only do they consume 40% less power, meaning a lower carbon footprint and lower running costs, they have a faster injection time and a faster cycle time, meaning more products, produced quicker and more efficiently.”
