We’re thrilled to be moving to our new site in Draycott. The Invest in Derbyshire service helped us secure funding via University of Derby’s ‘Invest to Grow’ programme which was vital in supporting bringing the site in line with our requirements for our ongoing expansion plans in the region.
We have invested in the highest specification equipment including ultra-precise laser cutting machinery and an all-new machining facility. This will allow us to grow rapidly across the next three years..
