Following our news release in March 2007 regarding the expansion to manufacturing works at FMS, we have the following exiting news for 2008
We have just installed a one 5 tonne and two 3 tonne overhead cranes in the new unit therefore allowing for all of 19000sq feet to be manufacturing rather than just extra space for storage
We have also just received full planning approval to put a second storey office block on our existing offices; work will be carried out during 2008
The above changes are to allow FMS to separate its fabrication and final assembly of new machines therefore allowing for a better quality to its customers
The office expansion is to allow for:-
The new workshop will also have an enclosed electrical bay for control panel building and machine testing before despatch
(BELOW IS A COPY of news release from March)
Now in our 8th year of trading Foundry Machinery have found the need to expand to keep up with the demands of its customers and offer further manufacturing facilities.
As from March 2007 Foundry Machinery have expanded its manufacturing facilities from 8000sq feet to a further 11000sq feet industrial unit next door.
Therefore giving a 19000sq feet manufacturing facility.
We felt the need to expand to enable us to cope with our current order status for 2007 and allow us to take on bigger and more modern manufacturing equipment to keep more of our equipment in-house rather than sub contracting work out to others.
We feel this is key to our business to ensure our customers delivery times are in our hands not the hands of others.
In 2006 we took on extra employees and sub contractors; this has helped us achieve a record turnover for 2006 and 2007 is already set to improve on 2007.
We have also invested in a fleet of 5 brand new Mercedes service support and installation vans to ensure our support vehicles are always on the road servicing the needs of our customers in the UK and Europe.
