This engineering business was run for many years from a small unit – Unit G opposite where we are now. A machine shop had been on this site longer than most can remember – at least four owners before the current owner Jerry Ashton. People no longer youngsters would peep in and reminisce about their time in Unit G and the nostalgia of the smell. But in 2016 we were outgrowing the cramped space.
Expanding our CNC capabilities and adding other tooling meant that we needed to move to larger premises – fortunately Unit H in the same estate became available. We simply hired a large fork lift truck and carried everything over to the new unit in the spring of 2017. The new unit provides a good working area for machinery as well as a large welding table and plenty of floor space for fabrication and assembly, should this be required for larger jobs.
Outside the new unit we have a 22kW workplace charge point for electric vehicles and we ensure that recycling is maximised, thus send as little as possible to waste.
