New investment in lathe technology at TR’s Hank® manufacturing plant
TR Fastenings, part of the Trifast plc Group of companies, has maintained a strong presence in East Sussex for many years, and the latest arrival at its Hank® manufacturing facility in Uckfield represents an important investment in its UK operations. Despite the challenges that Covid-19 has presented, demand for TR’s products continues to increase and the purchase of a high performance CNC Sliding Head machine reflects this.
Specialists from Star Micronics were on-site to commission the machine and to oversee relevant training for TR users. The SR-32JII Type A weighs more than four tonnes, and the installation and implementation process took four days.
Andrew Nuttall, European Managing Director at TR Fastenings comments: "This purchase underpins our commitment to the future of our British manufacturing, and it represents our continuing faith in our East Sussex facility."
