Murray Metals Group said it has made a significant investment in its Plate Processing Centre of Excellence in Middlesbrough, by installing a new profiling and machining centre.
Part of a £1.3M investment, the company has also increased its material storage and handling equipment, as well as enhancing its stock range.
Murray Metals Group CEO Graeme Hill said: “This investment programme is driven by strong customer demand and our clear ambition to create one of the UK’s foremost processing facilities.
“We already enjoy an enviable reputation for flexibility, quality and delivery, and this latest investment will further strengthen our position in the UK marketplace.”
The capabilities of our new profiling and machining centre include the ability to profile steel plate in length and width combinations of 15m × 3050mm and up to a maximum thickness of 200mm.”
The new equipment is said to improve the Middlesbrough plant’s modern, multi-head oxy-gas and high definition plasma facilities with large area machine beds, together with just-in-time CNC bevelling and drilling facilities.
Mr Hill added: “Following this investment, our group strategy is to deliver increased efficiency and productivity for our customers by consolidating Murray Plate Processing at our Middlesbrough site. This will enable us to better service customers in all construction, engineering and manufacturing sectors, including the specialist Scottish energy market.”
