Sumed announces expansion at Hadfield site

Sumed Chairman Graham Collyer said "We decided to restructure in February 2012 reducing the size of our Board and strengthening the sales function. The Sumed sales team has never been stronger and  this has resulted in a healthy order book, including products manufactured at our Hadfield manufacturing plant. Our decision to recruit four extra members of the manufacturing team and reorganise the manufacturing area to increase production capacity is great news for both Sumed and for Hadfield."
