2012 saw the third factory unit purchased and building work started immediately to modernise the building an join it to the existing units. The lighting was replaced with modern low energy tubes, the floor was cleaned, DNC links were installed and compressed air supply installed. Two new Hardinge Bridgeport CNC Mills, one with 5 axis capability, were put into the unit as soon as the main shop was ready. A third seat of Pathtrace/Edgecam CAM programming software was purchased and Craig Hitchman joined the production engineering team from the CNC turning section.
