Factory expansion is XYZ Machine Tools response to record-breaking demand

Factory expansion is XYZ Machine Tools response to record-breaking demand

Added to MTDCNC by XYZ Machine Tools on 08 November 2012

Following two record-breaking years and with another successful series of ‘open day’ events taking place in its UK regional showrooms, XYZ Machine Tools Ltd reports that demand for its CNC/manual and full-CNC models is such that sales of ex-demo machines have already cleared the company’s showrooms in Waltham Abbey (London) and Blackburn. This is allowing XYZ to pursue a rolling refurbishment and restocking programme with the next ‘open days’ event scheduled for 21-22 November at the Nuneaton showroom and demonstration facility. The final 2012 event is pencilled in for the Devon headquarters, with 23-24 January 2013 confirmed for the Sheffield showroom shared with cutting tool specialist WNT UK Ltd.

“Floor space within XYZ is at a premium as a result of the increasing level of orders,” says Nigel Atherton, Managing Director. “Even though three quarters of the machines currently in stock have been sold and are scheduled for delivery, we will need more room for the new machines needed to meet the growing demand. The good news is that we now have planning permission for 18,000 sq. ft. to be added to the 60,000 sq. ft. main factory and administration centre in Burlescombe. Building work, including landscaping, should be completed by mid 2013, creating 15 new shopfloor bays and allowing the loading bay to be re-sited in a more convenient location at the far end of the extended building.“
