Shower tray manufacturer JT has announced an investment of £1 million following what it describes as ‘another successful year of sales and growth’.
The Leeds-based company has revealed plans for new manufacturing capital investment, as well as staff training and a new apprenticeship scheme. The investment will strengthen its British manufacturing capability and team skills, creating a ‘state-of-the-art site that will deliver innovative, design-led products to the UK bathroom market’.
The investment in technology, worth approximately £1m, will support planned new product development over the next 12 months and deliver “a revolutionary quality new product to meet customer specifications and demand”.
Founded in 1988, JT now makes one-in-five shower trays for the UK. The new investment aims to further enable the JT brand to meet the growing demand from both UK and international customers.
Paul Crossley, managing director of JT (pictured), said: “This investment is the projection of our proud 26-year history and will not only build on our quality service to our customers, but also lead the market in design and innovation.
“We know the quality of our design and innovative features in our products have made JT a British manufacturing success. With this investment, we hope to exceed our customers’ expectations and really build on our position as the UK’s number one – not only for product and quality, but for service and efficiency. We have ambitious growth plans and this investment will support the ambition of our multi-skilled team.”
