The purpose built plant is said to combine leading edge technology with state-of-the-art machinery and will help create 20 engineering jobs.
Simon Bingham (pictured), Caunton Engineering Managing Director said: “The Cut Shack is the result of more than four years’ planning and development and reflects a desire to innovate and change the way we do things.
“It has a unique configuration of nine separate processing machines sourced from Germany and the USA, which alone have a combined cost of more than £2.5M. This will allow us to effectively revolutionise our production process, resulting in huge efficiencies and increased flexibility. We have now created a purpose-built plant which reflects the very latest in industry thinking gained from a range of similar operations across the world.”
The opening of the Cut Shack is set to boost the number of apprenticeships offered by Caunton, with five extra fabrication and welding positions being created.
