UK Manufacturer Invests in Aerospace Expansion

Reliance Precision, established supplier to the global aerospace and defence industries, announces a multi-million pound manufacturing investment.

"In spite of the difficult economic trading environment world-wide," observes Managing Director, Roger Kenworthy, "we have seen consistent growth in our business and expansion of our customer base. With a strong order book and significant recent contract awards we have set out a major investment plan to expand and develop our core precision manufacturing and assembly capabilities."

A new sub-micron machining centre and new ultra high precision turning centre will give Reliance a step-change in technical ability, keeping the company at the forefront of precision component manufacturing. A new gear cell is to be introduced for optimal manufacture of high accuracy aerospace gears, whilst the existing gear cutting facility will be enhanced with new CNC machinery.

Reliance has always placed a high emphasis on the importance of metrology and a key part of the investment, already underway, is the development of a new temperature controlled metrology laboratory, which will house a complete suite of measurement and inspection equipment including a new sub-micron resolution Co-ordinate Measuring Machine (CMM).

Operations Manager, Ken Jolley, is enthusiastic about the future: "When looking at new equipment we never replace like-for-like, we always look to push forward our technical ability. This investment programme does just that, and, importantly, will help us build on our exemplary quality and delivery record."
