Hyde Engineering is pleased to be able to confirm we are expanding our current premises into the vacant unit next door.
“Following a successful 9 months and further investment in manufacturing equipment, the company finds itself needing a larger footprint to accommodate future growth plans” says Mark Hyde, Director and company founder.
The expansion will double the floor space to 6,000 sqft, paving the way for the addition of a mill-turn CNC machine later in the year, plus space for additional machine tools and firm plans to build a temperature controlled CMM room and clean room to house the additive manufacturing side of the business.
With current customer orders including the supply of free issue material and the need to store material for other customer orders, the addition will also make room for warehouse storage.
More details on these developments will be shared as works commence and as equipment arrives in the coming weeks and months.
