Kenrick approaches production landmark
Shepherd zinc cast furniture castor manufacturer Kenrick has increased production by 10%, with output poised to top 1million units a year.
The company is celebrating 70 continuous years of Shepard caster production in the UK and also produces 2.5million of its nylon twin wheel plastic castors a year.
‘The Shepherd castor is still the original and the best and we are really proud to be the only UK manufacturer of this type of product and it is now attracting a growing number of international enquiries for both residential and commercial applications,’ says Steve Jones, Kenrick md.
‘Designed to perform and built to last, this castor has established a strong presence within the furniture industry because it is so durable and reliable. As many areas of UK manufacturing come under pressure, we are delighted to be consistently manufacturing and exporting to a growing roster of UK and international customers.’
