Production returned to the UK
Following four successful years in Estonia, PNJ has finally decided to re-locate all production back to the UK. Having seen a large swing in demand from labour intensive manual welding and presswork to high tech laser cutting and robotic welding, PNJ’s order book and customer base has changed dramatically.
Shifts in customer requirements during 2006 led the Estonia based company to invest in new high tech equipment which then needed to be relocated back to the UK in 2007. This was a difficult decision but with much of the end product serving UK, Italy, France and USA, Estonia no longer afforded the company either the support for new equipment or the geographic location best suited to serve its customer base.
