13 Jun JVM Castings invests over £1 million at Tamworth site
The largest aluminium pressure Diecasting manufacturer in the UK, Midlands-based JVM Castings has completed a major investment of more than £1 million at Tamworth, in a growth plan that will see the machining side of the site double in size by 2020.
The company has employed 10 extra staff across the engineering, management and machining departments and taken on two new apprentices, with a further two joining them over the coming months. Collectively, this represents a 35% increase in staff at the Tamworth site in the last 12 months.
Machinery investments include the installation of 10 additional spindles and the planned purchase of a large bed five axis machine over the coming months, while investments into environmentally friendly and sustainable processes have also been key.
Until recently, the process of manufacturing diecastings, produced aluminium waste chippings that are costly to dispose of and not environmentally friendly, to solve this issue, JVM has purchased equipment to compress the waste and remelt it back into the manufacturing process , reducing waste to 0% and minimising environmental impact.
