Lattimer makes important machinery investments

Lattimer has announced that it is making important investments in machinery to promote … “its supercharged operation to target customers worldwide including factory operators and OEMs.”

UK precision machinist Lattimer is targeting growth in the global glass container manufacturing industry after investing more than GBP 1million in new machinery.
The Southport manufacturer, which has a twin facility in Vineland, New Jersey, US, has recharged its Southport factory, with new machinery and a series of upgrades to existing equipment.
According to Lattimer managing director Mark Hailwood, the business, which makes more than 20,000 component parts – primarily for the global glass container manufacturing industry – is looking to make further investments throughout 2014.
The company said it will be promoting its supercharged operation to target customers worldwide including factory operators and OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) for the glass container industry.
New additions to the factory floor include milling, turning, grinding and mill-turning machines.
“We work in an industry which constantly demands new and innovative engineering solutions,” said Hailwood. “This investment of more than GBP 1million will expand Lattimer’s capacity to produce an even greater range of products to help customers drive performance and slash costs.
“Lattimer supplies to manufacturers working on a massive scale, with machines operating 24 hours, seven days a week. Machine failure, of even a short period, can cost tens of thousands of pounds in lost production.”
The investment comes weeks after the Southport manufacturer announced strong overseas growth in Southeast Asia, following high profile deals in the Philippines and Indonesia.
