M A Ford opens new Technology and Training Centre

Added to MTDCNC by MA Ford on 04 July 2015

A new Technology and Training Centre has been opened by M.A. Ford Europe at its Leeds based Custom Tools Division following an investment of £750,000 to upgrade its custom tooling design and manufacturing operations while extending the training facilities on-site.


M.A. Ford Europe is part of US based global high performance tooling manufacturer M.A. Ford Manufacturing Co Inc and the UK custom tools division provides special tooling design, development and manufacturing alongside training and tool performance testing for customers and its European distribution network.


Prior to the new centre’s official opening, the company staged a special 4-day long preview event for customers, local businesses and European distributors to see high performance tooling product demonstrations, agree training schedules and explore custom tooling options.  


M.A. Ford Europe’s Managing Director, David Ward, was delighted with the event. He said: "Our Custom Tool Division is the ideal location for our new technology and training centre, as we can configure product demonstrations, training support and application briefings around the specific needs of our customers and distributors using our in-house tooling design and manufacturing facilities." He added: "When we arranged the preview event, we offered businesses the opportunity to come and talk to us about any special projects or manufacturing issues they had with tools from their existing suppliers to see how we could help. The response was exceptional and we spoke to around 20 companies covering a range of sectors including a leading Formula 1 racing team."
