Scottish contractor expands with new sawing and drilling line
Ayrshire-based steelwork contractor Newton Group has installed a new FICEP Orient 11 drilling and sawing line along with a RB1500 shot blast machine, all housed within a new production facility near Prestwick International Airport.
The company’s total investment in machinery exceeded £500,000 and gives it the option to significantly increase its service capability for customers throughout the country. The two new machines are laid out in line to afford an easy flow of material through both systems.
Andy Boylan, Works Manager of the Newton Group, said: “This investment and other measures we have taken have now increased our capacity to produce more than 200t per week with the existing and new plant working together in line.”
Newton also continues to process and produce fittings with a FICEP A152 angle line that was purchased three years ago.
