Hozelock is a major user of plastics in its garden equipment products, and since flotation in 1993, has spent £26 million on new facilities at its Aylesbury moulding plant and its Birmingham assembly plant and warehouse. Investments have included new injection moulders with robot take‐out on the larger machines and two automated manufacturing cells. One of the cells, now in operation at Birmingham, produces a water sprinkler gear box using a mixture of a manual and robot stations. The other cell, recently commissioned at Aylesbury, manufactures hose connectors in a system that uniquely links injection moulders to an automatic assembly machine.
