Lesjöfors is rebranding its two former European Springs & Pressings’ factories in Cornwall, UK, and launching them as a new company – Lesjöfors Heavy Springs UK.
Lesjöfors’ rebrand is part of a new division, focusing on growth and significant investment in the heavy springs sector across the synergised specialisms, product range and industries served within the Lesjöfors heavy coiling sites in the UK, Finland and Sweden.
The UK company has achieved a record breaking order book over the last year – sales are up 35%, the workforce by 40% and a new annual turnover record at GB£15 million (€17.8 million). In 2022, there are also plans to invest GB£1 million in new machinery.
