At the end of 2012 a Brand New XYZ Proturn SLX 555 CNC lathe was installed to increase capacity through our CNC Turning section.

Managing Director, Andrew Hosking, describes the reasoning behind the purchase: "This machine was brought in to cope with demand for large Gun Arms and other products that aren't suited to our range of high speed lathes. We are committed to providing a consistent quality product to our customers whilst cutting lead times wherever possible."
