Robin Penny, Managing Director at Penny Hydraulics, said:
“This is our first venture into computer aided manufacturing but the time is right to make the investment and so improve our service to customers. The temporary tax incentive from the Treasury and provision of a grant from the D2N2 Growth Hub has enabled this project to go ahead and we are extremely grateful for this help.
“These latest generation machines are extremely user friendly and designed to cope with manufacturing a wide variety of components without time-consuming programming. In addition to this, our apprentices will gain valuable experience working on the new lathe and we are excited to see their skills develop thanks to its introduction.”
