Harrogate Water to Invest £6.5 Million to Increase Capacity

Harrogate Water, the English bottled water company, has announced a multi-million-pound investment in the wake of another year of double-digit growth. State-of-the-art production technology is being installed to increase capacity in a £6.5 million project.

The company’s original glass bottle filling line is being replaced with a combination line, which can handle both glass and PET plastic production. It complements an £8 million investment in PET production in 2014 which has driven company growth of more than 60% in the last two financial years.

James Cain (pictured), managing director of Harrogate Water, comments: “Continuing strong demand in both home and export markets makes further investment essential to remain ahead of the curve. The new production line will provide us with the capacity and flexibility to meet customer needs and compete more effectively in high-volume markets. Overall, the business has grown by more than 20 per cent in the last year, vastly out-performing market growth of around eight per cent.”

Exports were boosted in 2016 by the launch of a new anti-roll bottle for the international air travel market, with sales surging to more than seven million bottles.
