Austrian automotive parts manufacturer and supplier Polytec Group is planning to create new automotive jobs by opening a new manufacturing facility in Telford. The plastic component manufacturer is involved in creating a wide array of products for clients, specialising in injection moulding and cutting edge fibre-reinforced plastics.

The move to build extra facilities comes after a new Land Deal was struck allowing development at the T54 Technology Park in Telford. Polytec’s plans have been broken down into three stages. They will begin with the creation of a new paint plant and assembly hall. This will be followed by a manufacturing facility and an additional assembly hall in the future.

The new buildings will add to the existing base Polytec has in Herefordshire. The expansion is being driven by increased demand for their products, including being awarded a number of new contracts from manufacturers.

Plans for the design of the new buildings have already been submitted. This includes a detailed application for planning permission. Once granted work on the site can begin.

If successful the new manufacturing and assembly facilities will see Polytec Group create up to 100 new automotive jobs. This number could rise further with additional demand and contracts too. There will be an array of different positions on offer.

Modern vehicles make use of more plastic components than ever before thanks to the developments that have been made with the material. With more strength and durability coupled with the flexibility, lightweight nature of the materials and the corrosion resistance, it is no surprise that more manufacturers are using them.
