Seven-figure machine tool investment

To support continued expansion, Middlesex Aerospace has committed to a seven-figure investment with long-term machine tool partner Yamazaki Mazak.

The Basingstoke-based, 150-employee company is one Britain’s leading tier-one suppliers of critical components and assemblies to major OEMs throughout the global aerospace market. Two state-of-the-art, five-axis multi-tasking machines, and one horizontal machining centre complete with an expanded tool storage system, comprise the latest investment.
The increased capacity of the new machines will allow the company to further develop its offering to customers. What’s more, the machinery will enable Middlesex Aerospace to operate lights-out manufacturing, 24-hours a day, improving production volumes. Laurence Foulds, managing director
at Middlesex Aerospace, says: “Our latest investment in machine tools from Mazak is one of the company’s most significant to date,
and will allow us to support a number of new customers and programmes, as we continue to
grow the business.”
