Technical insulation and passive fire protection (PFP) specialist AIS Technical is rolling out new products as it expands its UK manufacturing plant on Orion Business Park in North Tyneside.
AIS was acquired by Belgian giant IPCOM Group 18 months ago.
It has been earmarked to establish the first UK manufacturing facility for expansion joint specialist company, Insulcon, as well as manufacturing thermal insulation jackets for Thermal Insulation Distributors Ltd (TIDL).
The move is expected to create four jobs.
Managing director at AIS Technical, Chris Evans, said: “We are delighted to have integrated so well into the IPCOM Group and it is testament to the quality of our operation that we’ve been selected as the UK manufacturing base for group companies, Insulcon and TIDL.
“These products complement our existing portfolio and manufacturing everything on one UK site enhances our ability to respond quickly to our UK customers’ needs.
“We have now begun recruiting for several new positions to help us increase capacity and we are expecting more jobs to be created down the line.”
