The investment is in line with Lesjöfors’ focus on equipping the companies in the group in a way that streamlines the business. Michael Gibbs, Managing Director of European Springs & Pressings says:
“Our parent company, Lesjofors, has invested millions across our Cornwall operations in recent years and this is testament to the hard work of our team and the quality of our product lines. Bucking the widely broadcast reservation in investment, their response to our customers’ demands has seen our company turnover grow from £19m to £23m in the last two years.”

Additionally, new software and touch screen systems are being installed to further enhance the control, efficiency and productivity of the new line, alongside new digital response units, which monitor and enhance the powder coverage across the spring units.Gibbs concludes:
