5 Star is well established at Case Production. We are very proud of the facilities at our UK site. It’s taken over thirty years to get where we are today but in that time we believe that steady expansion has been key to 5 Star’s success.
December 1999 – The company outgrew its premises and moved into the current site on the outskirts of Wisbech in the heart of the Cambridgeshire Fens. Since then, we have gradually expanded, amended and updated the facilities.
The premises occupy in excess of 35,000 square feet of space, including production, stores and administration.
No department is more important than another, so whether it’s production, administration or storage, we put every effort in keeping each department up to date with the latest equipment and facilities.
As a leading Flight Case Manufacturer, we have an extensive infrastructure at our disposal, from machinery to I.T., warehousing and staff facilities, 5 Star Group has always invested heavily to ensure the continued support our customers deserve.
5 Star's sister company Mossman Trunks® is also shown on the factory layout.
