Metal manufacturer invests £250k

Worcestershire based precious metal contacts and precision metal pressings specialist, Samuel Taylor, will shortly be commissioning a new multi-slide press to increase its production capacity for terminal blocks and circuit breaker components following high demand for the materials.

The tool investment will total around £250k and along with automated box packing equipment and camera technology, it will allow extended manufacturing through evenings and weekends for the high volume quantities increasingly being demanded by customers.

Carl Siviter, sales manager, said: "The majority of STL's current turnover is non-automotive based, but this year see's the start of an internal project to achieve TS16949, both to penetrate automotive markets and to generate cost down efficiencies in the business.

"The Automotive sector is a very competitive market. The new approach towards TS for us, will help focus on driving efficiency improvement throughout the business and hopefully open up automotive for us. If you get things right at the input side you don't have to correct them later."
