12 Apr Chamberlin unveils £5 million machining investment

Chamberlin & Hill’s new machining centre in Walsall, which represents a £5 million investment, has been officially opened.

The 21,245 sq ft plant on Maple Leaf Industrial Estate, off Bloxwich Lane, has created an initial dozen new jobs, which will rise to 33 once all three new high speed machining cells are operational.

The castings firm, part of the Chamberlin castings and engineering group, which has its headquarters in Chuckery Road, has opened the new site to finish and despatch turbocharger bearing housings made at its main 127-year-old foundry.

The new facility supports the company’s move into fully machined components and positions the Chamberlin, which previously employed 130 in Walsall, as the only fully integrated supplier of grey iron bearing housings in Europe.
