Guhring Getting Ready to Move Home...

Added to MTDCNC by Guhring Ltd on 10 February 2017

We've all tried to save for a 'rainy day' or put some finances aside to buy something we desire. In the case of cutting tool manufacturer Guhring, it spent the last 5 years putting profits aside to build its new factory. That factory is now almost near completion and is set to be open for business in April 2017. 

After residing in Castle Bromwich Business Park since its UK inception back in 1990, Guhring has long outgrown its existing facility. Now, the company is set to realise its ambitions by moving to a purpose built 55,000sq/ft facility on the new Birmingham Advanced Manufacturing Hub. Located near the M6 and the main A38 arterial road, the purpose built facility will enable Guhring to move and vastly expand its HSS, carbide and PCD cutting tool production operations all under one roof. 

The new factory commenced construction in February 2016 and the movement of machine tools and inventory will take place throughout February until April with no disruption to service. Guhring is aiming to have all its staff and equipment in the new factory and operational for 18th April. The official opening ceremony is planned to take place in early summer 2017 with VIPs, the dedicated Guhring team and entertainment welcoming guests and customers to the celebratory event. 

Currently employing over 80 people, the new £11m investment will allow Guhring to organically grow and rapidly realise its ambition of employing 125 staff whilst creating greater market penetration in its core markets. Commenting upon the imminent opening of the new factory, Guhring's National Sales Manager, Mr Dave Hudson says: "We are excited by the prospect of moving to a new home for Guhring to support the UK manufacturing industry. The new site will make Guhring one of the UK's largest cutting tool manufacturers and it will give us considerable space to install new plant and equipment in order further grow our production and coating of specialised carbide, HSS and PCD tooling products. In addition, we will have the capacity to stock a complete range of standard and special products for immediate delivery to customers."

"As well as growing our production and service capacity and capability, we will also be able to demonstrate to customers live cutting trials on the latest machine tools that we will be installing in a new demonstration area. The investment is significant and our aim will be to manufacture and deliver a complete solution of bespoke cutting tools and applications from under one roof."

Further details of the location and on the official opening will be announced when information is available.
