Chapman Machinery Ltd are continuing to invest in manufacturing in the South West, and have just completed a production improvement programme in conjunction with funding provided by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.
The focus of the project was to improve throughput and quality of the manufactured product, covered under three main aspects;
1. Installation of a Dynamic Balancing Machine & associated equipment to bring subcontracted work in-house, improving product quality and throughput. Furthermore this will allow us to offer sub-contract balancing within the local area and allow continued development of new products and R&D in Cornwall.
Funding for this project was 55% provided by Chapman machinery Ltd, and 45% provided by ERDF programme, administered through the Cornwall development Company.
As part of the project Chapman Machinery Ltd have already created 2 new positions within the company to be able to continue to meet growing demand from the EU for it’s products, and plan to create a further position later in 2018.
