06 Jan £5m Machining Facility for Grainger & Worrall
High precision casting expert, Grainger & Worrall (GW), is to open a state-of-the-art, £5 million machining facility at its site in Bridgnorth, Shropshire.
The new centre, which will be operational from early 2017, will centralise the company’s machining operations.
With a high-end, controlled environment, the new facility will further shorten the engine development process, while maintaining the highest output quality. The new machining facility will also help to deliver production-capable parts at prototype level, thus reducing lead times.
The 33,000 square foot, temperature controlled machining facility will include seven vertical, two five-axis and six horizontal machining centres, alongside five CMM measuring machines.
GW works across the automotive, commercial vehicle, motorsport, aerospace and defence sectors and clients include Aston Martin, Bugatti and McLaren. The company also provides high precision castings to a number of F1 and NASCAR motorsport teams.
