Over the next 4 months, Elcometer’s Belgium manufacturing operations, located in Hermalle-sous-Argenteau, will be transferred to their new purpose built 1,600m2 (17,200ft2) state of the art UK CNC Machining Centre facility in Manchester, opened in April 2014 – maximizing productivity and simplifying the control and management of Elcometer’s coating inspection and physical test equipment business.

In recent years the Group has made considerable investment in new equipment including vertical and horizontal milling machines, sliding head lathes, planar and cylindrical grinding machines and robotic loading and unloading facilities. This pattern of investment will continue with several new equipment additions already earmarked for the coming year.

This increased capacity and capability will result in direct benefits for customers in terms of even greater product availability and quality.

Commercial operations (sales, service and repair) are not affected
