Dundee firm hails machinery investments

Dundee firm GA Engineering Sliding Head has hailed a major machinery investment as it recovers from the impact of Covid-19.

Despite the challenges the pandemic has presented to the manufacturing industry, the city firm has seen strong growth this year.

Part of Pryme Group, it has spent a six-figure sum on two new Star Micronics sliding head lathes.

It takes the number of machines at its site at West Pitkerro Industrial Estate to 27.

Around £1 million has been spent on equipment in the past four years.

Operations director Kerry Devlin said the investment would benefit its global customer base.

She said: “Our team have worked incredibly hard to keep our business operating successfully over the past year which has ultimately allowed us to invest in new equipment.

We work to some of the tightest tolerances in the manufacturing industry, working with part diameters as small as 0.3mm.

“This means it is incredibly important that our machinery is of the highest quality.

“The two new machines are now fully commissioned and operational in our site in Dundee, which will greatly benefit our growing customer base.”
