2017 Dec – A period of growth sets Newburgh Precision up for the future
Newburgh Precision’s commitment and determination to grow in the Defence sector is highlighted by the recent installation of a new £500k CNC gantry machining centre. The Kafo KMC-4140 double column gantry was purchased to meet the demand of a defence contract awarded in the first quarter of 2017.
Lee Townsend, Sales Director said “The machine strengthens our already extensive capacity, although the machine was purchased with one contract in mind we have had the opportunity to utilise spare pockets of capacity to prove out new work which has led to orders being placed with Newburgh.”
David Greenan, who has been Managing Director for the last 5 years and has 43 years with the business, takes up the position of Vice Chairman, taking over Chairman, Vince Middleton’s duties whilst he focuses on other projects. David has also become a Director of Sizer Ltd, pelleting solutions manufacturer, who have recently moved into new premises after being based within the Newburgh Precision factory in Rotherham.
Danny Gibbons, Operations Director has after 15 years with the business taken up the role of Managing Director.
Lee Townsend, Sales Director and Matthew Jewitt, Business Systems Director remain in their current roles. To continue to support the current business growth Jack Pickford, CNC Programmer has become Sales Engineer.
Newburgh Precision are currently recruiting a number of CNC Horizontal Borer/Milling Machinists and a CNC Vertical Borer vacancy to help meet the growth in the defence and aerospace sectors.
