LoadLok’s Centre of Excellence increases capacity


Over the last decades LoadLok (member of the Cargo Control Company) has seen its business grow, making the company a market leader in cutting edge cargo control solutions. 

Already in 2019 this growth has allowed it to invest in a 5000 square metre Centre of Excellence in Hirwaun (South Wales) including new manufacturing equipment, R&D Centre, sales offices and improved service levels. 

The company is now investing in the next phase of its expansion with new, high-speed CNC Milling equipment and increased capacity on its  integrated Rollforming equipment.

This investment will further improve the company’s ability to serve the business needs of its customers in the future, reduce lead times and increase capacity for steel and aluminum cargo restraint tracks immediately by 20 per cent.

With the investment in its integrated Rollforming lines and CNC Milling Machines, LoadLok has increased efficiency significantly. The Rollformers have been designed to deliver maximum levels of customization possibilities, with variable mounting hole and length configuratons, for both mechanical and adhesive fixing, as well as steel tracks in all materials and finishes. This includes industry-standard tracks – LoadLok 3009, 1805, 1806, 5044 and 3011 – as well as totally bespoke tracks. 

With its CNC milling centre, te company is able to tailor aluminium Double Decking LayerLok tracks of the 5050 and 5060 series. 

Mike Reilly, managing director of the new Hirwaun facility commented: “Adding value to bodybuilders and transport companies is what we have done over the last three decades. We believe that by producing customised variations of tracks, specifically optimized in length, shape, mounting holes, material and finish, we can help our customers greatly improve the handling of our tracks on their production line and save them significant mounting time”. He added, “In fact, we also supply tracks which are ready for bonding. Together with a partner we have developed a strong glue that delivers a better performance than mechanically fastened! That in combination with our manufacturing flexibility and decades of load-securing expertise enables us to deliver reliable solutions to our customers that will last for years”.  

LoadLok is on a mission “to improve how the world moves cargo”. 

Mike continued: “We would really welcome discussions with our customers regarding how we can tailor our products to deliver a higher efficiency in their production process. Our engineering team is ready to deliver customised track designs, perfectly optimized to your needs.”
