The nearly 200,000 square foot, custom-designed plant is being built to Industry 4.0 standards, including the use of artificial intelligence (AI), and will be one of the most advanced plastics manufacturing facilities in the world.

It will significantly boost our capacity to make fittings for plumbing, electrical, industrial and municipal applications, with full automation enabled for all facets of sorting, labelling, counting, packing and assembly.

Safety has been front of mind while designing the plant. Most manual repetitive tasks will be automated, and the factory floor will be forklift-free, with vehicles guided by AI.

Pineville will also be highly sustainable, fully climate controlled, lit by energy-saving lighting and equipped with highly efficient machines, cutting energy and water use significantly. It will give us space to prototype a host of innovative new products already in development.

We expect to hire more than 150 people from the local community, with a particular focus on skilled supervisory, technical and quality control staff.

To continue delivering an exceptional experience for our customers, we also opened four new distribution centres in North America and look forward to further centre openings in the southern and western USA.
