Didn’t we do well? Kingsbury Midlands hub reflects on its achievements
Kingsbury’s Midlands office reflects on its achievements and celebrates as it moves into its third year of vigorous growth, having relocated no less than three times to accommodate an ever-increasing workforce.
From modest beginnings with just two employees, the operation has now expanded into a team of 10 people, with two busy divisions now based at the Blythe Valley Business Park offices.
Centrally located near the junction of both the M40 and M42, the Midlands hub was set up in October 2014 to promote the company’s newly-launched Large Prismatic Machines (LPM) division, which includes high precision machining centres and flexible manufacturing systems, alongside its smaller Hermle machining centres and the Index and Traub ranges of single- and multi-spindle CNC lathes.
Spearheaded by Business Development Director Chris Hewitson, together with Senior Applications Engineer-Steve Burrows, the company has established a strong line-up to support its portfolio of metal-cutting equipment and turning centres, which now includes machining solutions from four of Germany’s respected LPM manufacturers: Burkhardt & Weber, F. Zimmermann, SHW and Waldrich Coburg.
Joining the LPM division at the Midlands site as of January this year, Kingsbury’s new Grinding Division is already making great strides, ably led by Business Development Manager Dean Kiefer with the support of newly appointed Senior Applications Engineer Ryan Lakin.
Great things ahead
The past few years have proved exciting for Kingsbury’s Midlands hub and we look forward with much anticipation to achieving further dynamic growth in the future and delivering great things for our customers.
