Ingimex has continued to expand its capabilities with a £1.8million investment at its Telford site.
As part of the development, the company has added new levels of automation with the major replacement of its hand-fed laser cutting machine with an automated one, enabling programmes to be set and run all the time, and significantly reducing lead times for customers.
In addition, a new sawing automation has been incorporated which allows the team to more efficiently process individual jobs by developing and designing tailored programmes. The firm has also introduced a 6-axis machining centre and new sheet metal forming processes.
Justin Gallen, Managing Director of Ingimex, explained: “We’re proud to call Ingimex a champion of British manufacturing, with all of our bodies made from materials that are increasingly being made here in the UK.
Ingimex currently employs over 60 staff from its Telford site and is recognised as a leading provider of LCV bodies, which can be built onto major vehicle chasses.
