As challenging as this year might be, we have just recently engaged into a great expansion of our business by purchasing the building next door. This includes not only extra office space and a new boardroom for meetings, but also several new parking spaces and a large Laser & Assembly area, essential for our new and exciting projects.

This year we are expanding our capacity within the Universal Fabrications site by erecting a new building to the rear of our current workshop. This will include new facilities like extra office space, and provide the much-needed capacity for our new and exciting projects starting later on in the year.

Early December we took receipt of our brand-new Vertical Machining Centre increasing our machine shop capacity by having a bed size of 2184mm x 813mm x 762mm, the 4th Axis rotary table will also increase capacity even further.

With live projects ready and waiting the Haas VF-7/40 has already made a huge impact and will only continue to support us in turning around projects quickly and with reliable quality.

October this year Charlotte, Carl and Steven headed up to Manchester’s Event City for the Northern Manufacturing show.  Standing amongst the leading names in technology and engineering, showcasing our recent projects.

We caught up with industry peers and clients alike, whilst making new acquaintances, and returning with a strong set of contacts in which we have started great working relationships with, so all-round the show was a great success.
