Fabdec will soon be celebrating its 60th anniversary as a specialist producer of stainless steel heat transfer products.

A market leader in the dairy equipment sector among others, Fabdec Ltd enjoyed another award-winning year in 2019 taking home the ‘International Growth Through Export’ prize at the Shropshire Business Awards. The company now exports to over 40 countries.

There was also significant capital investment, including the establishment of 6ix Fabdec Ltd, a company which serves the brewery sector with a full range of high quality stainless steel vessels including design, consultancy and installation. More investment has also been made in the manufacturing facility, including the purchase of a fibre laser welding system which has increased the production capacity of heat exchange plates for brewery, milk cooling and heat recovery products. Furthermore, a solar photovoltaic system with 908 solar PV panels has been installed across the factory roof to generate renewable electricity and complement the LED lighting already installed across the premises.

2019 also saw the launch of a fully translated new website which reflects the company’s diverse range of products.

Looking ahead to 2020 plans are now in place to introduce a whole new business IT system to further support the efficiency and growth plans for the future.
