Maerdy mammoth installed

A super-large machine to provide additional production capacity has been installed at one of Avon Group’s sites in Maerdy, South Wales – and it’s a mammoth! The 200 tonne press, used to manufacture automotive components, is so large it had to be lowered into position through the roof of the factory! “The entire operation went extremely smoothly” reported Kevin Harrop, Group Operations Director. “The newly installed press will enable us to continue to supply customers with even larger automotive components and give us unique capability in this highly competitive marketplace.”
