Mr Harding-Terry added: “The company’s transition to industry 4.0 is essential for future-proofing the business and the new computer system allows full mapping of production, accounting, purchasing and distribution. “Operating in conjunction with new machines such as the tube bender and our forthcoming £350,000 investment into a robot welder and Bystronic press-brake, the computer system will also help to up-skill our workforce so that they are able to adapt to Industry 4.0 methods. “All of these advancements mean that our output is more efficient, quality and complexity of product is higher and our overheads are reduced, which is clearly being reflected on our bottom line, in conjunction with contract wins and diversification into emerging markets.”
