The new CNC 5-axis machine at Omega Plastics
Mould tool manufacturer, Omega Plastics, has invested in new machinery and has recruited new staff as a result of “exceptional growth” in 2015.
A new DMG CNC 5-axis tooling machine has been installed in the company’s Hartlepool facility, an investment that the company says enables it to widen its capabilities and provide a full turnkey solution to customers.
The company, which is headquartered in Blyth, Northumberland, has also increased its workforce by 11 staff members so far in 2015, with the expectation for more by the end of the year, including a Business Development Manager.
The new investments come in addition to machinery purchased and staff recruited in late 2014. The company said it sees it as “a necessity” that it invests in new machinery to allow it to both advance its capabilities and cater to wider markets, in particular the automotive sector.
