2014 Plant Investment & New Business
2013 turned out to be a steady year for diversification into new areas for PNJ. Whilst continuing to supply our traditional customers in the Agricultural vehicle and engine manufacture sectors, the company has undergone rapid growth into the construction equipment sector with an aim to having secured circa £1M of new business by mid 2014. Along with this the company has continued to seize opportunities in the machine cabinetry and retail sectors and plans to increase our presence during the coming year.
Having invested some £250,000.00 in 2013 the company has increased its sheet metal forming department with a brand new Trumpf 3meter Press Brake, upgraded all our machines to use 3D offline programming software, implemented a new Javelin MRP system and equipped itself with the most up to date Laser and Solid modelling software on the market.
To keep things moving this January we have taken delivery of two new Haas CNC machines offering state of the art CNC Machining and CNC Turning capabilities. These brand new machines reflect our commitment to continuous investment and strategic diversification into new processes and represent a further £200,000.00 of investment for 2014.
Whilst 2014 will no doubt present challenges in an ever moving market place, we believe our commitment to invest in new and better technologies will enable the company to remain strong and promote growth.
