For RK Engineering it's all about the relationship

For RK Engineering it's all about the relationship

Added to MTDCNC by Lead Machine Tools on 22 October 2015

Atherstone based RK Engineering has recently bought a Leadwell V-32i machining centre and a T-7A turning centre; the two machines are just the latest in a long line of machines bought from Lead Machine Tools. So, MTD went along to the Warwickshire border to get a greater insight as to why Leadwell machines are so popular.

The subcontract manufacturer has four factory units and these production shops have a grand total of 18 Leadwell machines.....To find out the details, Mr Keith Chetwynd, the Managing Director of RK Engineering tells us: 'I met Mike Heapy of Lead Machine Tools over 20 years ago and he's a great guy with great products. He always has and always will look after us really well. He supports us with the right technical solutions and even financing. Nothing is too much trouble and the support we receive is exceptional.

Looking at one of the latest machines, the V-32i, Mr Chetwynd tells MTD: 'This machine was bought in the summer to do a job where we needed more accuracy. Some of our other machines are a little older and couldn't meet the parameters of this project. We have no plans in place to extend our four factory units any further, however we do have plans in place to re-new our existing plant list and get more up to date Leadwell machine tools to increase the capabilities and capacity of our existing floor space. '

The confidence RK Engineering has in its machine tools from Lead machine Tools is testament to the quality, consistency and longevity of the Leadwell range. When all this is backed by exceptional support, there is no reason for RK to look anywhere else....
