Numac Expand Production & Invest in New Capacity

Even in what is seen as a difficult time for UK manufacturing, Numac are investing to maintain their efficient state of the art manufacturing facility in the North West of England.

As part of this programme, Numac have recently invested over £100K on a new state of the art Y axis mill turn machine.

Coupled with other efficiency boosting processes such as offline programming and automated tool management, the new tool (which combines both milling and turning processes into one procedure) reduces setup times further improving flexibility and efficiency and reducing lead times.

Full details of the capabilities of this new machine can be found on the Mazak website.

You will also find further details of Numac’s experience on their website:

The new machine will help to fulfil requirements of  existing clients including Dresser Valves & Weir Group as well as freeing up capacity for new projects.

“We always have the idea of delivering maximum quality & value to our customers” Explained Andy, “And it is with this in mind that we have made this latest investment. It will allow us to be more reactive to customer requirements, and deliver a truly competitive service without compromising on quality.”

In addition to the installation of the new machine tool, Numac have also recently expanded their capacity by introducing a night shift to cater for recent increased demand for their services.

“In difficult economic times, focus must be on delivering customer requirements efficiently, right first time. These recent investments in both staff and capacity will help us to continue to deliver”
