West Bromwich Engineering Firm Bucks the Trend with Increased Orders and Increased Investment Keeping Manufacturing Alive in the West Midlands
Investment in new machinery by West Bromwich based engineering firm, Tentec, keeps them ahead of the competition and keeps manufacturing alive in the West Midlands.
- (1888PressRelease) October 18, 2011 - Due to a large increase in orders, West Bromwich engineering firm, Tentec has made a significant investment in the latest machining technology. Alongside recently approved plans to extend the company's manufacturing facilities, this investment proves that high-precision manufacturing is alive and well in the West Midlands at a time when other companies are either closing down their facilities or moving production abroad.
Tentec designs, manufactures and supplies bolt tightening equipment for a wide range of industries including oil and gas, wind energy, power generation and the general engineering market. The new machine, a top-of-the-range Hyundai-Kia CNC Centre complete with a Fanuc Control System for automatic and more efficient operation, is used to manufacture both standard parts and custom-designed components, including large diameter hydraulic nuts. The investment of over £200,000 in this and two additional manual turning machines gives Tentec greater control in production planning and enables quicker and more efficient turnaround, resulting in faster delivery timed for customers.
The purchase and installation of the new machines was overseen by Operations Director Dave Jones who says: "It gives me great pleasure to see what the team at Tentec has achieved when many other companies are struggling. Everyone works hard to ensure we produce the best products and give our customers first class service and support."
"Our timely investment not only sends a positive message to our customers," adds Mike Gethings, Managing Director "but it also reassures our employees that the management has a commitment to continuous improvement, so guaranteeing the longevity of the West Bromwich manufacturing facility."
