ARRK’s new 12,000sq ft. Rapid CNC Centre in Gloucester, UK
ARRK has expanded its UK manufacturing operation with the opening of a new, dedicated building for rapid CNC machining in Gloucester.
ARRK’s new 12,000sq. ft. facility, which sits adjacent to its existing rapid prototyping centre, has allowed it to significantly increase the number of CNC machines to 10 in total, with a mixture of 5 axis and 3 axis machines.
Craig Vickers, ARRK’s European RP Operations Director, sees the move as an important part of the Prototyping Division’s continued growth and ongoing success.
“To have this large CNC facility in the UK, offering customers a truly rapid turnaround, is an important addition to our capabilities and confirms ARRK’s intention to provide an even better service for our customers,” Vickers explained. “Even with the ancillary equipment and operations needed to support such a department, there is still room for further growth and development”.
This expansion follows last month’s announcement by ARRK of the opening of a new rapid prototyping facility in Bydgoszcz, Poland as it grows its prototyping operations across Europe.
