Grainger & Worrall to open new machining facility

Grainger & Worrall has announced that it is to open a state-of-the-art, GB£5m (US$6.3m) machining facility at its site in Shropshire, UK. The new centre, which will be operational from early 2017, will centralise the company’s machining operations.

With a high-end, controlled environment, the new facility will further shorten the engine development process, while maintaining the highest output quality. The new machining facility will also help to deliver production-capable parts at prototype level, thus reducing lead times.

The 33,000sq ft, temperature controlled machining facility will include seven vertical, two five-axis and six horizontal machining centres, alongside five CMM measuring machines. The state-of-the-art equipment will further enhance GW’s already world-leading production process.

Installed in a purpose-built environment, the all-new facility will allow GW to improve its measuring capacity and capability, while also housing, the existing equipment currently installed at the company’s site in Telford.

Mark Davies (above), plant director of GW Machining, said: “Coming at an investment of more than £5 million, our new machining facility will help to improve product quality and will also provide our staff with the state-of-the-art equipment to develop the projects of tomorrow.

“I am especially pleased that all of our people in Telford are moving to the new facility in Bridgnorth. I think it is great testament to the company and shows they are engaged and want to be part of GW, which is brilliant.”
