The machining centres will continue to assist in driving down tooling lead times for our customers and will allow the group to further reduce sub-con services by enhancing our in-house process capabilities.

Not only investing in machinery, the group continues to look to grow its engineering team of skilled toolmakers and currently have vacancies for experienced CNC Machinists and Toolmakers.
