Suffolk based engineering company Fix-a-Form International Ltd has recently invested in new Haas turning equipment. Bucking the downturn trend and increasing their engineering prowess, the Haas ST-20 CNC lathe is set to be installed mid March, 2011.
Alan Bonnett, General Manager Engineering stated:
"This latest investment shows confidence in our ability as a network of specialist leaflet label printers to continue to grow during times of recession. The Haas lathe is a high performance turning centre that offers fast set-up and turn-around times. This will significantly increase our production output and efficiency in producing custom leaflet label production equipment, supplied exclusively to our licensee network.
The combination of the new ST-20, our existing Haas VF8 and Bridgeport capabilities makes us one of a handful of engineering companies in East Anglia with such capabilities. This makes us an ideal partner for any local companies wishing to outsource specialist machining or machine control jobs."
